Digital railcards could be just the ticket to avoid penalty fares
Now your card can be on your smartphone rather having to carry a paper card
Penalty train fares imposed because a passenger left their railcard behind should soon become less frequent after rail companies announced the introduction of a digital version that can be stored on a smartphone via an app.
Within the next few weeks, young people buying the popular 16-25 Railcard will be offered the digital one for the first time. Next will be the Network Railcard, which provides discounts on trains across routes into London and south-east England. It will go digital later this summer. The remaining railcards – Disabled, Senior, Two Together and Friends and Family – will also be available via the app at some point in the autumn.
