Frequently Asked Questions?

Can the 16-17 Saver be used to buy Season tickets?

Yes, the 16-17 Saver gives 50% off Standard Anytime, Standard Off-Peak, Standard Advance and Season tickets. 

It is designed to enable 16 and 17 year olds to access the same half price child fares that they could access until they were 16.

The 16-17 Saver cannot be used as a Photocard for a paper Season ticket and if you are buying a paper Season ticket for the first time you will need to have a photocard created at a staffed National Rail Station. You will need to provide a passport-type photograph for your Photocard and the Photocard must be carried when travelling.

If you are buying a smart Season ticket, you usually will not require a separate Photocard to validate your Season ticket.
