You can buy a Senior Railcard at any staffed station ticket office or National Rail-licensed Travel Agent. The main advantage of this is that you can do it on the day you are travelling. To save time, it’s a good idea to fill in the application form before you get there.
If you're applying at a station for the first time you'll need to complete an application form which is also available here and you’ll need to bring one of the following:
- Your birth certificate
- Passport (all nationalities accepted)
- UK driving licence
Once you've bought your Railcard at a station, you can then register it online. This will make it easier for you to renew or buy other cards online.
If you are renewing your Railcard, you will need to fill in the application form, and show your existing Railcard. This is automatically accepted as proof of your age.
If you do not have any of the above forms of identification you can call our telesales service, who will check your eligibility against the electoral roll.
