    Do the same rules apply with disabled railcards with rail Rovers/Rangers in that a companion also received the 34% discount?

    I'm assuming so, but just wanted to double check.

    I've used a rover as a companion on a Disable railcard, so yes. (Chesire Day, Heart of England, Freedom of Severn and Solent)

    The time restriction still applies.

    For most rovers and rangers you can receive the usual discounts for you and someone traveling with you. The usual time restrictions as per the rover and rangner will apply. If you bring up the page detailing the rover you want on NRE, it will tell you if you can use you Disabled railcard.

    Cheers guys. Yes, it was the companion element I was looking at.

    It's got the Freedom of Scotland 4/8 I'm looking at. I've researched the restrictions which are actually quite generous given the rural nature of some of the routes.
