So many people wanted the new Millennial Railcard it crashed the website

So many people wanted the new Millennial Railcard it crashed the website

The card costs £30 each year, with many users saving the cost of the card within just one or two journeys.

"We've had an unprecedented number of people visiting our site for the 26-30 railcard".

Millennials across the United Kingdom have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration at the "shambles" launch of a new railcard for those aged 26-30, after the website crashed following the release of just 10,000.

More millennial railcards are expected to be released in due course, but by then it will be too late for those on the cusp of turning 31. They also reassured customers at 10:20am that there were still railcards available, however there were still website difficulties due to the demand.

We're off to form an orderly queue for our railcards but it honestly looks like even Glastonbury tickets are easier to get our hands on.

However, people trying to buy the national railcard today have experienced problems doing so as the website keeps crashing. "Sort out your website to make it fair!"

The cards could be applied for from today but as there are only 10,000 now available, they are being issued on a first-come, first-serve basis, the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) said. "Please bear with us, we've got the whole team working on it and hope we can have it back up shortly", said a spokesperson for railcard.co.uk.

Tom Drury, from London, wrote: "The launch of the new railcard is a shambles".

The longtime Jet recorded just eight sacks in the past two seasons, and he struggled to consistently generate pressure. The Jets went 10-6, and NY rewarded their defensive tackle with a five-year, $86 million dollar deal.

And a £12 minimum fare applies between 4.30am and 10am Monday to Friday, for any time and off-peak single and return tickets.

Unlike the existing 16-25 card, the new one will be available the Railcard app on your phone - meaning it is digital only rather than a physical card.

The sale today, 13 March, is part of a trial extension that originally launched in December past year but was available only to customers using the Greater Anglia network.

'Research being gathered as part of the 26-30 Railcard trial expansion is being used to inform discussions with the government about a national roll out'.

The Rail Delivery Group (RDG) said there will be a limit on the number of 26-30 Railcards available while the scheme is trialled in order to assess the impact on revenue and passenger numbers.

The card, which went on sale today, is for all travellers aged between 26 and 30 as they can avail 33 per cent off rail tickets.

The majority of people would not be able to get additional discounts between the age of 25 and 60, when a senior railcard kicks in.
