Discount Aberdeen - Cardiff train tickets

The most efficient way to pay less on your Aberdeen Cardiff train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

  • When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Aberdeen to Cardiff? Check with your calculator, considering:

    A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

    B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average price for a Aberdeen Cardiff ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

    Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Aberdeen to Cardiff (one way trip).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
