Discounts for 16 and 17 year olds
The 16-17 Saver is a new national railcard for 16 and 17 year-olds. It costs £30.00 per year and gives 50% off standard Anytime, Off-Peak, Advance and Season tickets for travel at any time of the day.
The 16-17 Saver is valid for one year or up until your 18th birthday, whichever comes first. However, if you buy a season ticket with a 16-17 Saver discount before it expires, you can continue to use it for up to 4 months after the expiry date. The expiry date and the date that you can use your season ticket until are shown on the 16-17 Saver.
