Pensioner Travel Vouchers

Book a seat on NSW TrainLink Regional services

A Pensioner Travel Voucher provides free and discounted travel on NSW TrainLink Regional services to eligible pensioners and seniors within NSW.

NSW or ACT Pensioner Concession Card and NSW War Widow/er transport concession card holders are entitled to four Pensioner Travel Vouchers each calendar year for travel within regional NSW.

You can use Pensioner Travel Vouchers for free travel on NSW TrainLink Regional services in Economy Class within regional NSW. You can use them for four one-way trips annually or two return trips annually.

To upgrade to First Class, you will only need to pay 15% of the full adult peak season fare (a minimum $10 trip fee applies).

If you require a sleeping berth, there will be an additional charge.

If your trip takes you over the NSW border, you pay 50% of the relevant Economy or First Class fare for the interstate portion of your trip.

You can catch a Sydney Trains or NSW TrainLink Intercity service to get to or from your NSW TrainLink Regional service at no extra charge as long as you book it with your NSW TrainLink Regional service.

Before you book you will need to register your concession card with NSW TrainLink. You can do this by calling 13 22 32.

You can book online or by calling 13 22 32. Find out how you can book your ticket.

Victorian Pensioner Concession Card holders are not entitled to apply for NSW Pensioner Travel Vouchers but NSW TrainLink sales agents are able to accept Victorian Pensioner Travel Vouchers as payment for the Victorian portion of a fare when travelling interstate on NSW TrainLink services. Please note that you will still need to pay for the NSW portion of the fare when using a Victorian Pensioner Travel Voucher.

Each calendar year, Victorian Pensioner Concession Card holders get one free voucher for a single economy class journey or one free voucher for a return economy class journey on NSW TrainLink services between Melbourne, Benalla, Wangaratta and the NSW - VIC Border (Wodonga).
