Partial travel concession
Partial travel concession pays half the amount a full concession pays. You can get it for a condition that restricts you using your legs to move around.
To receive a partial travel concession, you must already be receiving one of these supports:
- War Disablement Pension with permanent impairment of at least 55%
- Disablement Pension with permanent whole-person impairment of at least 48%
- Permanent Impairment Compensation for whole-person impairment of at least 48%.
You'll not qualify if you have restricted mobility because of a heart or lung condition.
Full travel concession
You can get a full travel concession if you're receiving these supports, either permanently or for the past 3 years:
- War Disablement Pension with permanent impairment of at least 100%
- Disablement Pension for at least 75% whole-person impairment
- Permanent Impairment Compensation for whole-person impairment of at least 75%.

- have lost both legs above the knee
- are on a War or Disablement Pension or Permanent Impairment Compensation for amputation of at least part of a limb.
