Discount Birmingham - Bradford train tickets

The most efficient way to pay less on your Birmingham Bradford 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.

If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to evaluate how many trips you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

For your evaluation, you need to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Birmingham Bradford ticket is £61.90 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £61.90: £88/£61.90 = 1.42. It will take you approximately 2 trips from Bradford to Birmingham (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.

The cost to purchase a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most train fares for a complete year.
