The Millennial Railcard will be available today, but only to those in select post codes, and numbers will be limited.

The railcard has been eagerly anticipated since it was announced in the autumn Budget, and a full roll out should be happening by Spring this year, but a date has not been set.

A trial of the cards went out to certain postcodes last year, and it has now expanded to include those who use Greater Anglia trains.

If you live in East Anglia, you’ll be able to start saving a third on your rail journeys from today.

But you’ll have to be quick- this is a limited trial and will be a first come first served basis, only 10,000 are available so get in quick.

If you miss out then you’ll have to wait until they are fully available to the rest of the UK.

The railcard is digital only, which means that once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll be able to start saving instantly, instead of waiting for one to come in the post.

For the list of postcodes that can get their hands on the card, see the list below

Residents in these postcodes can get a digital version of the card from tomorrow.

What if I don't live in the post codes above?

There may be a trick to get the 26-30 railcard even if you don't live in the area.

When applying for the railcard, on the first screen it asks for your "billing address".

It appears that if you have a friend who lives or works in the given post codes (see list above), you can enter that post code and carry on with the application.

When you come to pay, it again asks you for your billing address, and at this stage you can change it to your home address - even if it's not one of the given post codes.

Latest Deals does not advocate this approach. It may be against the terms and conditions.
