About Companion Card

The Companion Card program supports people who have a disability and a lifelong need for attendant care support to participate in community activities and attend venues.

Companion Card holders receive a second ‘companion' ticket at no charge at participating venues and on public transport. The 'companion' ticket is also exempt from booking fees.

Reasons to register as an affiliate

You can register as an affiliate for free.

The Companion Card:

  • provides an opportunity for an organisation or business to demonstrate commitment to social inclusion and community access for people with a disability
  • provides a simple, consistent and reliable method of identifying people with a disability who require significant attendant care support to participate in activities and visit venues
  • can assist organisations and businesses to meet some obligations under anti-discrimination laws.

Businesses and organisations that affiliate with the scheme are provided with promotional materials, as well as an entry in the searchable online database used by cardholders.
