The easiest way to pay less on your Birmingham Inverness train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for a Birmingham Inverness ticket (i.e.: £175.54)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£175.54 = 0.5. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 1 trips from Birmingham to Inverness (one way journey).
