Rail travel

Disabled persons Railcard

If you receive Attendance Allowance or Disability Living Allowance (DLA) at the higher or lower Mobility rate or at the higher or middle Care rate then you might qualify for the Disabled Persons Railcard.

The Disabled Persons Railcard allows you to get a third off most rail fares throughout Great Britain. If you're travelling with an adult companion they also can get a third of their rail fare - so you can save money for your friends too!

Assistance on rail journeys

National Rail needs advance warning if you need any assistance from staff on a rail journey. Ideally they need more than more than 24 hours notice. This is particularly important if your journey includes getting on or off a train at an unstaffed station.

To arrange a train journey in the UK, or to book yourself a reservation on the Assisted Passenger Reservation System, contact National Rail Enquiries on 0845 7484 950.

Travelling to Europe by train

Services operating from St Pancras International in London and Ashford in Kent are fully accessible to wheelchair users. Two wheelchair spaces are available in two first class carriages on each train. Wheelchair users pay the lowest available standard class fare. A companion can also travel with you at a special rate. To find out more call  08705 186 186 or email: sales.enquiries@eurostar.co.uk

There is information about the accessibility of stations on Transport for London's website.
