Website for millennial railcard crashes

Railcard discount quidco

A spokesman for the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) said: "The 10,000 quota of 26-30 Railcards, made available as part of the national trial, have now sold out".

However, the launch has been less than auspicious after the website selling the railcards crashed. This is due to the exceptionally high volume of traffic on the 26-30 Railcard website.

The tickets, which cost £30 a year and save a third off most rail fares, have been made available from today on a first-come first-served basis.

In the last Budget in November, the Chancellor announced a new railcard that would offer cash-strapped millennials up to a third off rail fares.

Many people turned to Twitter to share their frustration at being unable to get on the website, with #railcard trending on the social networking site.

The 26-30 Railcard won't apply to season tickets, Eurostar, and most London Underground and Docklands Light Railway tickets - unless using Oyster pay-as-you-go. "Sort out your website to make it fair!' Others said it's worse than 'waiting in the Ticketmaster queue". "Please bear with us, we've got the whole team working on it and hope we can have it back up shortly".

In a message to the National Railcards Twitter account at 7.48am, youth worker Josh Booth, from Leeds, posted: "Been trying to get 26-30 railcard since 7am, your website crashing and been on hold on the phone since then".

FOX keen on bringing back Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Newman didn't specify a reboot or a revival, but clarified that he wasn't announcing anything official. The fanbase for Buffy exists as strongly as ever in terms of participating in discourse.

Meanwhile, Tom Drury, from London, wrote: "The launch of the new railcard is a shambles".

"It's a great idea for the rail card to be available on your phone, rather than as a physical card - I can imagine this being a hit with this age group and it's much better for the environment too".

It must be bought online and downloaded onto a smartphone.

The sale today, 13 March, is part of a trial extension that originally launched in December past year but was available only to customers using the Greater Anglia network.

However, it's not good news for everyone, as the railcard can not be used on season tickets, which many working and commuting young people buy to make daily travel to work slightly cheaper.

Some saw a amusing side, with one person tweeting: 'Wonder if the plan is to make us wait until we're too old to use them for the 26-30 railcard'.

The majority of people would not be able to get additional discounts between the age of 25 and 60, when a senior railcard kicks in.
