The 26-30 Railcard, dubbed the “millennial railcard”, finally launches nationwide today.

It offers one third off most rail fares for more than four million people across the UK, saving cardholders an average of £152 each.

The rail discount card was first promised by the chancellor in his Budget in 2017, but the rollout has been slow.

A pilot programme of 10,000 in the Greater Anglia area in December 2017 sold out within two months. In March 2018, the railcard went on sale nationwide – but with only 10,000 more available.
