Is using multiple Railcards in the same booking allowed?

Is using multiple Railcards in the same booking allowed?

Yes, you can use up to three different Railcards in the same booking, as long as there are enough passengers in the group. We’ll do all the hard work for you to find the best discount available.

Railsmartr will automatically use the Railcards offering the best discount, if you have provided more than one Railcard. For example, if there are two adults and two children travelling together, and you have selected one Family & Friends Railcard, one Senior Railcard, and one 16-25 Railcard, Railsmartr will use just the Family & Friends Railcard if that gives you the cheapest option.

How do I add multiple Railcard discounts?

Using multiple Railcards is easy! Let our step-by-step guide show you how: 

1. Select how many people are travelling 

Head to the Railsmartr website and pop in your journey details. If you’re going to be using multiple Railcards, you need to enter the number of passengers travelling, first.
