Great Western Railway logoGWR 50% off train tickets for young personsDiscount on advance fares with a 16-25 Railcard. Book online

28 days left

If you have a 16-25 Railcard you can get 50% off advance single fares on Great Western Railway (formerly First Great Western) trains when booking online until 11.59pm on Sat 31 Dec – though you can book travel up to 31 Jan 2017.

A 16-25 Railcard gets 34% off most fares if you're under 26 (or over 26 and in full-time education), so this is an extra 16% boost to the usual discount.

Advance single fares are available on selected trains – these are marked with a red asterisk and 'online discount' (*online discount) at the train selection stage. These fares can be booked up to 6pm the day before travel, and are non-refundable.

You can only get this offer online via the link above, not at the station.

On Thu 27 Oct, we found these cheap fares using the offer:

  • Oxford to London Paddington, 10.01am on Sat 17 Dec – £2.95 (£5 without discount)
  • Exeter Central to Penzance, 11.52am on Fri 2 Dec – £4.20 (£8.50 without discount)
  • London Paddington to Bath Spa, 11.00am on Thu 8 Dec – £7.15 (£14.50 without discount)
  • London Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads, 7.58am on Sun 6 Nov – £9.90 (£20 without discount)

What if you don't have a 16-25 Railcard?

The 16-25 Railcard normally costs £30 for one year or £70 for three years, but occasionally it has codes to get it cheaper. If you have enough Tesco Clubcard points, you can exchange them to get 50% off a 16-25 Railcard, and NUS cardholders can get 12% off an annual card. See our Railcard deals page.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

For the sake of transparency, so you can check there's no difference, here are duplicate versions of the * links that don't help MoneySavingExpert.com: Currently no affil links.
