Railcards can save passengers a third on their train fares and from next April they'll become even easier to use. The Association of Train Operating Companies is planning a digital Railcard that will allow for quicker applications, with no need to queue at a station ticket office or to wait for a card in the post. Once downloaded, the app will be available offline to show to rail staff, meaning no more frustration because you've left your card behind. Don't wait until April to get a money-saving Railcard.
