    Can I use my Victorian Seniors Card in Western Australia

  2. Brenda Lacey says:

    Hi Valerie,

    All State and Territory governments issue their own Seniors Card and the benefits vary. Generally, businesses (including tours, attractions and accommodation) in one state will usually recognise cards from another. It is best to ask the business if it provides a discount before making a purchase. Here is the link to discounts offered in Western Australia – https://www.seniorscard.wa.gov.au/benefits/. Information about transport concessions are on the Transperth website – http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/tickets-fares/concession-guide.

    You’re welcome to contact our information line on 1300 13 50 90 (9:30am to 1:00pm weekdays) if you would like further information.

    Hi Barbara,

    Your Seniors Card will be recognized in NSW for concession travel on public transport. You may be able to use it for some other things but there is no obligation for a NSW business to accept it. It’s always worth asking though! https://www.seniorsonline.vic.gov.au/seniors-card/seniors-card-faqs
