Renewal of your concessionary Diamond Travelcard
If you qualified for your concessionary Diamond Travelcard under the age or sight impairment categories or because you are deaf and you are still resident in South Gloucestershire, your concessionary Diamond Travelcard will be renewed automatically.
If you qualified under one of the other categories, you will be required to reapply for your concessionary Diamond Travelcard and to provide supporting evidence.
Please submit your application approximately 8 weeks prior to your current card expiring.
Please note that it can take up to 5 weeks for your application to be assessed and, where you are eligible, for your concessionary Diamond Travelcard to be issued.
If you have moved to the area and do not have a South Gloucestershire concessionary Diamond Travelcard, you will need to apply as a new applicant and provide supporting evidence.
If your appearance has substantially changed since your last photograph was supplied for your Travelcard, you may wish to get your photograph updated as the bus company may refuse to accept your concessionary Travelcard.
The concessionary travel team will always aim to issue a South Gloucestershire Council approved concessionary Diamond Travelcard prior to the expiry of your existing card. Please note that if an application is not complete or the relevant supporting evidence is not submitted, this will cause a delay in assessment.
Changes of address or personal details
It is important to contact us without delay if you have moved or are moving address, or your personal details have otherwise changed.
If the Travel Card holder passes away, then the executor or administrator of the estate should notify us and return the Travel Card to South Gloucestershire CouncilIs there anything wrong with this page?
