Queensland Pension Fare

 Queensland Pensioner Entitlements Fact Sheet

Queensland pensioners enjoy four entitlements per calendar year aboard Queensland Rail Travel long-distance services. The four Queensland Pension rail travel entitlements can be utilised in various ways depending on the rail accommodation booked:

Economy Seat: One-way trip using one entitlement for each trip. Cost of $25 per person, which is the administration fee only#.

Business Seat: One-way trip using two entitlements for each trip. Cost of $50 per person, which includes administration fees only#.

Twin Sleeper: One-way trip using two entitlements for each trip. Cost of $239 per person, which includes administration fee#, sleeping berth and mandatory meal charges.

Single Sleeper: One-way trip using two entitlements foreach trip. Cost of $239 per person, which includes administration fee#, sleeping berth and mandatory meal charges.

RailBed: One-way trip using two entitlements for each trip. Total cost varies depending on the travel sector. For example, the cost is $200 Brisbane to Cairns, which includes administration fee#, sleeping berth and mandatory meal charges.

# The administration fee ($25 per entitlement used), is non-refundable. Travel in RailBeds and First Class sleepers require an additional upgrade paid for berth and meals which are mandatory inclusions in these accommodation types. Refer to the fact sheet above for examples or contact Queensland Rail Travel for more fare information.

Interstate Australian Pension Fare​

On presentation of a current Pension Concession Card (PCC), interstate pensioners receive a discount of 25% off the full adult rail fare on Queensland Rail Travel long-distance services. Meals and upgrades to a sleeper or RailBed are not discounted and incur an additional cost.
