HM Forces Railcards

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by Squirrel, Mar 14, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I know this'll sound bone to some, but I've not had one of these in years. However, it transpires that I need to use the train next week and the fare will be over a tenner cheaper with a railcard. The other pi55er is that I'm on leave, so can't go to my own UPO, but I do live very near to RAF Wittering, where there will be (I assume) a couple of RN writers in the UPO there. Can any one of you fine people enlighten me as to how much one costs, and whether I can just get one from any UPO?

    thanks in advance.

  2. They cost £12.50

    I'm sure they were only £3 when I last got one................

    I don't know if you can go to Wittering and get one though
  3. Thanks for that mate.

    £12.50.....'kin hell!!

    It's not really worth me bothering.
  4. not unless you use the train quite often
  5. The last one I got was free......
  6. Goes up to £15 from 1st Nov 07.................. :eek:

    so if anyone wants one, don't forget to get it before then and save £2.50
  7. Then phased out soon after supposedly - or that is what the RAO on this pongo base told me!
  8. Squirrel,

    You should be able to get it from any UPO (or Crab/Pongo) equivalent. My last two have been from non-naval establishments. A quick phone call in advance should sort you out. Although it has gone up its still a pretty good deal even if only make about 5 journeys a year. It works on the London underground as well.
