Frequently Asked Questions?

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

Railcard discounted tickets which involve a cross-London journey are valid for travel on the London Underground.

Disabled Persons Railcard holders can also register their Railcard discount onto an Oyster card to get 1/3 off Oyster pay as you go single fares and daily caps on National Rail, London Underground and Docklands Light Railway services.

To set your discount on an Oyster card take your Oyster card and valid 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. 

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

As a special concession, a Disabled Persons Railcard holder travelling on Oyster pay as you go can get 1/3 off an Off-Peak Day Travelcard Zones 1-6 (including stations in London Zones 7-9 if required) for one adult travelling with them.

The accompanying person must travel with the Railcard holder for the whole of the journey.

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 accompanying person.

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