Over 60s discount

Do UK citizens over 60 get any concessions on public transport or at attractions in NSW?

Good advice from lien.

Wherever you go, always ask if they give a seniors discount.

Worst case scenario they will say 'no'

Unfortunately, seniors discounts on travel only apply to Australian citizens. One day I'm sure i will be asked for proof of entitlement.

Travel concessions are jealously guarded within Australia and are restricted to locals only. Other discounts as have already been advised are generally available. Many places especially cafes and the like will give you a 10% discount if one asks nicely. Over a period of time it can mount up. Many attractions will also offer senior discounts.

'Travel concessions are jealously guarded within Australia and are restricted to locals only. '

Bean, I think you will find that applies to all counties. It certainly does in NZ, most European countries, most Asian countries and the US and the only concession we got on the UK was the right to purchase a seniors travlecard which entitled us to a discount on some trains and buses.

You don't get a concession because you are an old person. It's supposedly an entitlement you have earned through a lifetime of paying taxes.

We we arrived at the Hong Kong airport and went to get our transit pass we were offered the senior card. It was great. (And we do not look or speak Chinese!)
