    Disabled persons railcard question

    Disabled persons railcard question 24th Jun 19 at 5:21 PM
    I have a question about applying for a disabled persons railcard.

    I'm doing it online and it has an option to put in a discount code, and it says council code.

    Do councils give you a discount when you purchase a railcard? I just wondered where you get a discount code or a council code for it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Some councils do; many don't, and many that used to have stopped. Check your local council's website (usually the council that issues concessionary bus passes if you have multiple local authorities).

    https://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/transport-and-roads/public-transport/concessionary-travel/disabled-railcard-discount-codes.aspx

    Qualifying disabled residents of Cheshire West and Chester can get a 20% discount on the price of a railcard making it 16 instead of the full price of 20, if they have a discount code. Please see the National Rail website to see if you qualify.

    If you qualify and already have a Cheshire concessionary bus pass you can apply online.

    Thanks for this.

    I can't find anything on my local councils website at all, they offer the freedom pass (TFL) but no mention of a discount for this, so I assume they don't supply one.
