Discount Cards

Apprentice Extra


As an apprentice, you can apply for the National Union of Students’ (NUS) Apprentice extra card. It costs from £11 and will give you great discounts for 12, 24 or 36 months depending on the card you purchased.  



Visit NUS Extra for more information or to apply.  You will need a valid email address, your debit/credit card and a recent photo of yourself.  For your Place of Apprenticeship Study, please choose The Real Apprenticeship Company Limited.

Apprentice Oyster Card



If you live in a London Borough and are aged 18 or over, you can apply for an Apprentice Oyster Card too, which costs £20 and will give you 30% off adult-rate Travel cards and Bus & Tram Pass season tickets.  

You will need:

  • Our UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN) (TRAC’s UKPRN is 10030670)

  • Your Unique Learner Number (ULN)*

  • A London borough address

  • An active email address

  • A digital photo

* You can find your ULN on the Personal Learning Record.  If you’re having trouble finding it, ask your Learner Manager /Apprentice Coach or call us.
