If you’re one of those 25-30 year olds who feel a bit awkward because London transport says you’re too old for discounted train fare, then this is good news for you!
In this week’s Budget meeting, the government is set to increase the age limit from 25 to 30 years old for those eligible to buy a £30 railcard for discounted train travel.
From spring next year the so-called millennial’s card will allow 16-30 year olds up to a third off fares. This will only apply to off-peak journeys though so if you thought the card was going to help you on your way to and from work, don’t get too excited.
However with season tickets set to go up by 3.6% in January 2018 (the highest rise since 2013), this card may not be a bad idea for you 16-30 somethings.
