The Millennial Railcard Launched Today But You Will Need To Apply Quickly

In the last Budget in November, the Chancellor announced a new railcard that would offer cash-strapped millennials up to a third off rail fares.

The rush to purchase the online railcards caused the website to crash for several hours shortly after their release as it was unable to cope with the high demand.

"We've had an unprecedented number of people visiting our site for the 26-30 Railcard".

But only 10,000 will be released, meaning around one in 500 people in the age range will have one.

The railcard launched today and is part of a year long trial before the government decides whether the discounts are rolled out nationally.

Physicist Stephen Hawking dies aged 76
Hawking himself met Eddie Redmayne as part of the actor's preparation for taking on the role of the scientist. In an interview with New Scientist magazine, Hawking said there was still one puzzle left for him.

The 26-30 Railcard won't apply to season tickets, Eurostar, and most London Underground and Docklands Light Railway tickets - unless using Oyster pay-as-you-go.

In a message to the National Railcards Twitter account at 7.48am, youth worker Josh Booth, from Leeds, posted: "Been trying to get 26-30 railcard since 7am, your website crashing and been on hold on the phone since then".

Tom Drury, from London, wrote: "The launch of the new railcard is a shambles".

The 26-30 Railcard will only be available as a digital Railcard, not as a physical card.

An RDG spokesman said: "The trial of the 26-30 Railcard is part of the rail industry's long-term plan to change, improve and boost communities by enabling more people to travel by train".

He also suggested that both the parties should work together to find a solution. After the meeting, Mr Maken said it was a fruitful discussion on the issue.

There are other restrictions: the card can only be used for pre-bought tickets, rather than those bought on the train - as is the case with many railcards.

Between 04:30 and 10:00 Monday to Friday, a £12 minimum fare will apply.

The website to buy the railcard, which would give eligible travellers a third off fares, crashed within minutes of opening and people aren't happy about it.

How much are the 26-30 railcards?

The card is meant to be used on a smartphone, but if you lose your phone or your phone dies you can transfer the card to another phone online. 26-30 railcard will help 4.5m save money on fares by Spring.
