Senior Railcard

Eligible Devon residents can save 20% off the cost of a Senior Railcard by applying for a unique promotional code from the Concessionary Travel Team at Devon County Council.

In order to obtain a promotional code, applicants must:

  • Be a resident of Devon
  • Be aged 60 years or over

The full price of a Senior Railcard is currently £30 for a 12 month card; Devon residents receive a discount of 20% by using their promotional code.

Please be aware that the senior railcard team may not have up to date information regarding the expiry date of any existing railcard applicants may hold, so any new railcard purchased via the website or helpline may not run concurrently with the previous railcard.

The Senior Rail Card offers a third off most rail fares locally and nationwide – to find out more about all the other benefits on offer please visit the Senior Railcard website.

If you do not wish to purchase the Senior Railcard via the website, there is also a dedicated telephone helpline enabling you to purchase your card by telephone once you have been issued with your promotional code.

The discount codes are issued by our National Bus Pass team, please contact us for further details.

Disabled Persons Railcard

If you are disabled you may be eligible for a Disabled Persons Rail Card which also allows you to buy discounted rail tickets. If another adult is travelling with you, they can also travel at the same discounted fare. The Railcard currently costs £20 for one year or £54 for three years.

Devon County Council cannot deal with applications for the Disabled Persons Railcard, but for further information visit the Disabled Persons Railcard website or contact the application helpline on 0345 605 0525 (minicom/textphone 0345 601 0132 for customers with hearing impairments).
