Annual Gold Card

The Gold Card is issued free when you buy an annual season ticket at a station within the Gold Card area where the origin and/or destination are also in the Gold Card Area.

Holders get ⅓ discount on first and standard class single and return anytime and off-peak tickets on participating train company services within the Gold Card area, plus:

  • Up to three other adults aged 16 or over each receive a ⅓ discount when travelling together
  • 60% off child fares for up to four children aged between 5 and 15 years (subject to a £1 minimum fare)
  • Up to two children aged under 5 travel free of charge.

The maximum group size is four adults, four flat fare-paying children and two children under 5 (who travel at no charge). The Gold Card holder must travel with the group at all times.

Annual Gold Card holders can also purchase one National Railcard including a Network Railcard for another adult for £10
