A Railcard for 26 to 30-Year-Olds Is Launching Next Year
The world is finally realising that we are poor af...
Hey millennials - remember when you were youthful, unburdened by actual adult responsibility had a railcard? And then you got old and had to pay full price again, despite the fact you are now living without the benefit of a student loan, but student loan repayments instead?
Yeah, well buckle up and prepare to relive the glory days, because tain company Greater Anglia Railways are set to trial a new railcard for 26-30 year olds.
According to MoneySavingExpert, the scheme will launch this December, before rolling out across the nation in early 2018, and will give users a third off rail fares.
If the railcard is similar to its 16-25 counterpart, it could cost as little as £30 a year - making in an absolute DEAL for anyone who travels by train.
Greater Anglia confirmed it will be trialling 10,000 passes later this year, and said passengers will be able to sign up via the Railcard app on Apple or Android.
"We are delighted to be at the forefront of this innovative trial bringing better value fares and more convenience to rail passengers in East Anglia," they said.
According to The Evening Standard, there will probably be a £12 minimum fare between 4.30am and 10am Monday to Friday (excluding advanced fares, public holidays and some dates in July and August), but aside from that, there will be no cap on tickets.
Sounds good right? Now you’ll have no excuse for missing Uncle Bernard’s 60th birthday party. Lucky you.
