Discount Birmingham - Liverpool train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your Birmingham Liverpool 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.

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can calculate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

For your assessment, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Birmingham Liverpool ticket is £13.92 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £13.92: £88/£13.92 = 6.32. It will take you about 7 trips from Liverpool to Birmingham (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.
