You can save yourself time by buying your Senior Railcard online. The only things you’ll need are:
We aim to dispatch your Railcard within one working day of you ordering it, but it’s probably best to allow up to five working days for your Senior Railcard to arrive. It’ll be sent out free of charge by First Class post, but if you prefer, you have the option to pay for Special Delivery.
You’ll need the physical Railcard with you to be able to get a discount on your rail ticket, so be sure to leave enough time before your journey for the Railcard to reach you. If you need to travel straight away, you’re better off buying a Senior Railcard over the counter at your local staffed station.
Senior Railcard At a Staffed Station Ticket Office
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:
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.
Senior Railcard by Phone
We do not sell by phone, only online.
Senior Railcard when it is Time to Renew your Railcard?

If we have your email address, we’ll send you a reminder that your Railcard is due for renewal. But remember, it’s your responsibility to check that your Railcard is in date before buying or using Railcard-discounted tickets.
If you didn’t buy your Railcard online, you can still renew it online. Just make sure you register your Railcard first so that you don't lose any validity.
