Will it also work on the underground/buses? Is there any sort of reciprocal agreement with the railways?
No idea but it will get you 30% discount at all station retail outlets.
( In 1960, nowhere in Britain was more than five miles from a railway station. The food and service may have been atrocious, but it worked, mostly. )
While a nice little bonus, it not exactly life changing or essential for the majority of people.
I do however see a rise in people claiming to be veteran for having been kicked out in basic training 20 years ago.
Has anyone found out if it’s an annual renewal, 5/10 years or life time purchase? I ask because I think it’s a great idea, especially for frequent rail users. But I’m not a frequently rail user, so can’t see the point of purchasing an annual card if I’m not going to use it more than once a year. If, however, it’s 10 years or life time, then it’s certainly worth buying for use on the odd occasion.
