The National Entitlement Card (NEC) aims to make it easier for young people to access public services across Scotland, using one card to access many services.
If you’re 16, 17 or 18 (or a full-time volunteer) you can get special deals on travel using your Young Scot card, including one third off bus journeys and up to 50% off train travel within Scotland. Some card holders also get ferry vouchers.
Proof of age
For those aged 11-25, the NEC is your Young Scot Card which also works as your Proof of Age (the PASS hologram) and Euro under-26 card. You can use it to claim local, national and international discounts. Visit the Young Scot website for more details.
How to apply for your National Entitlement Card
All first year secondary school pupils will have the opportunity to apply during the new term induction week. If you’ve missed it or are no longer in first year, you can apply online.
