Grab cheap train tickets ahead of the rest

People travelling by train in the East Anglian region can get one-third off as part of a new initiative – and train users in Cambridge could get cheaper tickets before people in other parts of the country.

A pilot scheme for a new railcard for 26-to-30-year-olds in the area began on December 6. The digital 26-30 railcard costs £30 a year and gives customers a third off most rail fares in the UK.

People living in one of the designated postcodes – which include CB1 to CB25 and PE1 to PE38 – can buy the railcard online or over the telephone and then download an app onto their mobile device.

The offer will ‘test the water’ for the national launch of the so-called ‘millennials’ card’ announced in the Budget.

It will be available for a limited time only but can be used right across the country for a year.
