Frequently Asked Questions?

Can I use my Railcard for tickets for travel on the London Underground?

With your Disabled Persons Railcard, you and an adult companion can get 1/3 off Off-Peak Day Travelcards and  Anytime Day Travelcards when bought as part of your journey to London from outside London Zones 1-9 (Anytime Day Travelcards are subject to a minimum fare which is currently £22.60). Please note that your adult companion or the adult accompanying person must travel with you for the whole journey in order for them to also get the discount.

You can also get your Disabled Persons Railcard discount loaded onto your Oyster card to save 1/3 on single peak or off-peak pay as you go fares on London Underground and Docklands Light Railway services in London. You will need to have registered your Oyster in your name to do this. Simply take your Oyster card and a valid Disabled Persons Railcard to a London Underground station and ask a member of staff to set the discount for you. You can also get the discount set at Oyster Ticket Shops and Visitor Centres.

Please note that Oyster pay as you go discounts are for the Disabled Persons Railcard holder only.

If the Disabled Persons Railcard holder is travelling on a Disabled Person's Freedom Pass, they cannot use their Disabled Persons Railcard to buy a discounted ticket for an adult accompanying person.

See the Transport for London website for more details on Oyster pay as you go.
