NUS announced today a deal that will see students who hold an NUS Extra card get a 10% discount on a 16-25 railcard.

The 16-25 Railcard  normally costs £26 and saves users 1/3 on rail fares throughout the United Kingdom for a year. NUS has now teamed up with 16-25 Railcard to offer NUS Extra  cardholders a 10% discount.

NUS President Wes Streeting  said “Travel costs can really add up for students, so this will be extremely welcome news to NUS Extra Card holders."

The 16-25 Railcard can be used on both long and short trips as well as weekends, public holidays and during the week. The only restriction is that if you travel at or before 10am Monday to Friday, a minimum fare will apply. The Railcard can also be used on all standard and first-class advance fares.

In addition to the discount with 16-25 Railcard, NUS today announced a further range of discounts  that have been added to NUS Extra since launch including ATS Euromaster, The Ecologist, Ace Card, Scotts, ATOC (YOR), Joe Browns, Truffle Shuffle, Ben Sherman, Juicy Bikes, The Independent, Cross Country Trains, Mango and Nicky Clark.
