There are a number of different rail cards available to members of the public.
The national railcard website gives information on the different types available and the criteria that needs to be met in order to obtain them.
All of the cards are valid for 12 months and the young persons, senior and family railcards can be used on all of the 25 privatised train companies across the national rail network.
The network railcard can be used on 17 different privatised train companies across the south east of England.
The freedom pass gives you free travel on buses, tube, trains, Docklands Light Railway and trams in London.
