Where can I go for information on concessionary Travel?

You can find information on Hampshire’s concessionary travel scheme here http://www3.hants.gov.uk/concessionary-travel/disabledtravel.htm. It offers free bus travel to the disabled person and (in certain circumstances) their carer. For travelling by train you can apply for a disabled person’s railcard. For information on this scheme see http://www.disabledpersons-railcard.co.uk or call 0845 605 0525.


The card costs £20 per year and that covers the child and the parent/carer for 1/3 off the fare. If you have a child aged 15 or under, you may wish to consider a Family & Friends Railcard which covers up to 4 Adults and 4 Children. This costs £30 per year and provides a 30% discount on adult fares (age 5 to 15) and up to 60% on children’s fares for off peak travel. http://www.familyandfriends-railcard.co.uk/eligibility-benefits/what-do-you-get/
