Definition of railcard in English:
A pass entitling the holder to reduced rail fares on off-peak trains.
- Holders of national railcards could claim a discount on Grand Central tickets, although there would be no further cuts on the cheapest fares.
- Ladies and gentlemen, the guard is passing through the train, please have your tickets and railcards ready for inspection.
- It struck me this week, as I watched news footage of weary London rail commuters moaning about fares going up, what quite incredible value a railcard is compared to a car.
