Millennial 26-30 railcard website crashes as thousands scramble for discount travel

How and when to apply for the Millennial railcard- you will have to be quick It’s time to claim a special new railcard for people between 26 and 30 but you’ll need to be quick

The popularity of the millennial railcard became clear this morning, after the website for people to get their hands on one crashed due to demand. This is due to the exceptionally high volume of traffic on the 26-30 Railcard website.

A spokesperson for the RDG, which represents train operators and Network Rail, said: "We're sorry to those who have been unable to buy a trial 26-30 Railcard this morning". However, as only 10,000 millennial railcards were released nationwide - yes really, the race is on to bag a railcard and the application website has already crashed. However, only 10,000 went on sale and cash-strapped young people complained they were more hard to get hold of than Glastonbury tickets. "Sort out your website to make it fair!"

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

The new "millennial" rail card for people aged between 26 and 30, taking a third off "most rail fares across Britain", was announced past year before trialling in East Anglia in December, and now a larger "trial" is beginning tomorrow (Tues 13 March).

Applications can only be made on the 26-30 railcard website, and holders need to download an app before they can use the card. The target group are leisure travellers, with no discounts on season tickets, and a £12 minimum fare on all journeys between 4.30am and 10am, excluding public holidays and weekends. What's this?, but because travelling around is so important to the economy (it means people can get to work, or can visit other places, for example) the government is still quite involved in how it's run and how much those tickets can cost.

Who is eligible for the 26-30 railcards?

The railcard is digital-only and is available to buy online or over the phone - it is unavailable for purchase at rail stations. Therefore you can still apply up until the evening before your 31st birthday and travel for a full year afterwards.
