To celebrate the coronation of HRH King Charles III, National Rail is giving away 100 free Railcards. There’s no better way to celebrate the Bank Holiday than saving a third on your next rail adventure.
The FREE Railcards are only available to those boasting ‘regal’ First & Middle, or First and Last names relating to the new Monarch.
Acknowledging that most non-royals do not have four first and middle names, Railcard is offering those with similar namesakes to His Royal Highness Charles Philip the chance to access their own discounted (train) carriage’.*
The giveaway will run from Friday 5th to Monday 8th May and will be hosted on National Rail’s Instagram page. To enter, simply comment with your name, and the first 100 to claim (and prove their ‘regal’ identity) will be eligible to receive their FREE Railcard. Avid travellers can find out more about the giveaway here.
Those who are looking forward to celebrating the Coronation weekend with their own adventure can save 1/3 on rail travel by purchasing one of 9 different Railcards available from their website.
Whether travelling solo, as a Two Together or with Family & Friends, at an annual cost of £30 (Disabled Persons Railcard is £20), a Railcard saves an average of £140 per year and can pay for itself in just one journey.
* Applicable names can be any First and Middle names or First and Last names that are phonetically similar to the Monarch. Examples of these could be; Charles Philip, Charlotte Philippa, Charlie Phillips or Charlize Phipps. The chosen names will be at the discretion of National Rail based on their overall similarity.
