How to use your card

The Seniors Card is for personal use. You can't transfer it to other people, including family members, friends or colleagues.

Show your card to let businesses know that you are entitled to benefits and discounts that they have agreed to provide.

Always tell the business that you intend to claim their benefit or discount before going ahead with the purchase.

There is no obligation on businesses to give you a discount after the transaction has occurred.

Using your card interstate or overseas


You can use your NT Seniors Card for discounted fares on most interstate public transport. It is best to check this before you travel.

Many interstate Seniors Card businesses also extend their offer to visitors. However, it is at their discretion and you should always check first.


It is worth taking your Seniors Card with you when travelling overseas. It is often accepted by businesses internationally as a matter of goodwill.

There is evidence of the card being accepted in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, USA, Canada and UK.
