Do you travel by rail regularly? Did you know that there is a Disabled Rail card which gives you a third off your fare and for your carer too.
It is £20 for a one-year Railcard. £54 for a three-year Railcard.
For more information visit the link below to find out about all discounts available and eligibility criteria too
There is also a DWP Rail Card that gives you 50% off for the card holder and you can get the application form from your local jobcentre apparently. This is the article below which claims this is available but it is not widely known.
Please let me know if anyone applies for this !
If you live in London and using the tube you can apply for the Freedom Pass, details below

If you use crutches/sticks, wheelchair or on a mobility scooter and would like to travel by train but you may have concern about the journey. Don't worry you can get help
If you ring National Rail a few days before your journey they can provide someone to help you with your luggage, with boarding the train via a ramp if required & ensure you have disabled seating and someone will be waiting at your destination to help you too.
This is called Travel Assistance service and has to be pre booked a day or so in advance. Here is the link below,
If anyone knows of any other rail discounts please comment as I am looking forward to hearing about any other helpful hints or information about rail travel.
