Millennial railcard website crashes

Railcard discount quidco

This is due to the exceptionally high volume of traffic on the 26-30 Railcard website.

A spokesman for railcard.co.uk said: "We've had an unprecedented number of people visiting..." However, as only 10,000 millennial railcards were released nationwide - yes really, the race is on to bag a railcard and the application website has already crashed.

26-30 Railcard holders will get 1/3 off standard anytime and off-peak fares, as well as off standard and first class advance fares, across the whole National Rail 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.

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

The new "millennial" rail card for people aged between 26 and 30, taking a third off "most rail fares across Britain", was announced previous year before trialling in East Anglia in December, and now a larger "trial" is beginning tomorrow (Tues 13 March).

One of the Italians Kuciak wrote about had co-owned firms with two Slovaks who went on to work in Fico's office. Before he was killed, he had been investigating Italian businessmen in Slovakia with suspected mafia links.

Many felt a cap on the amount of railcards available was thoroughly unfairWhile others were left raging at the amount of time it took to actually get oneSome smug travellers actually did manage to get a card despite lengthy waitBut it didn't seem to have the intended impact on millennials' opinion on politics... There will be a £12 minimum on tickets between 4.30am and 10am, excluding weekends and public holidays. However, the website was still down as of 2pm on 13th March.

Who is eligible for the 26-30 railcards?

Currently, people aged 16-25 can buy a railcard to get a third off their fares, as well as couples in a Two Together scheme, or families in a group card. Once purchased, you'll need to download it to the Railcard app on a smart phone and you can then start travelling (and saving) straight away.

Not only that, the railcard will be valid for the full year until you turn 32!

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.

What it means: The plan was to extend the very popular Young Person's Railcard to include more people.
