Introduce a Veterans’ Railcard

Last updated 2 weeks ago

...and we will introduce a Veterans’ Railcard.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.52

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to introduce a railcard offering discounted train travel for military veterans.
  • In January 2020, the government announced that the scheme would be rolled out in November 2020. It is expected that 830,000 people will be eligible.
  • With a timeline for implementation in place, this policy is ‘in progress’, and will move to ‘done’ following the planned rollout in November 2020.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
