GWR's Touch smartcard is only available for over 16s and has a photo of the card holder on it. Chiltern Railways ITSO doesn't have a photo. Can a child use a Chiltern ITSO card on GWR for a child fare if the Chiltern card was issued to an adult?
Can smart cards be issued to children under 16?

Scotrail and c2c offer child ITSO smart cards.

As far as I'm aware, you can only load Child rate tickets onto a Smartcard that's been registered with a Child "status" and Date of Birth, but only c2c, GTR (Gatwick Express, Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink) and ScotRail mention that they can issue Child Smartcards at present.

This is correct - not sure about the date of birth, but you'd declare that to establish the status anyway.

Off topic and probably really for another thread but the requirement for a photograph on a GWR touch smartcard no longer applies in the run up to the new part time season tickets.....
