Some months ago, we spoke about the $250 Regional Travel Card for Seniors. It is a great little bonus from Service NSW that gives those eligible $250 for any travel related expenses.
If you have not yet got one this year, you best be quick. The deadline for application is 30th November. That is the deadline for applying for it, not using it. You will have 14 months to use it and can apply for a second one in 2021 (after 18th Jan).
It can be used on our buses and trips but can also be used for trains, petrol and so on.
Full eligibility details and the application are here:
It is available to those receiving and a Pension or Commonwealth Seniors Health Card holders.
The card is available this year and next year, for $250 each year. That is $500 worth of travel – not too shabby!
How to get one
You apply through Service NSW. You can apply online via the link above, call 13 77 88 or jog into a Service NSW office.
What you get
Once you apply, they send a visa debit card with a $250 credit. With that you can travel the world! Well not really, but it will get you somewhere. It is worth doing.
Stay safe and see you soon!
