Jobseekers urged to apply for FREE railcard giving 50% off fares

If you’re on jobseeker’s allowance or job hunting and claiming universal credit you may be able to get a free railcard from the jobcentre which gives 50% off many rail tickets, thanks to a little-known discount scheme.

But you aren’t guaranteed to get a railcard just because you’re on jobseeker’s allowance or job hunting and claiming universal credit – jobcentres issue them on a case-by-case basis. There is help in the link below on how the scheme works and what you need to do to apply.
