Discount Birmingham - London train tickets

Do you want to travel for cheap? Many railcards and deals exist to spend less for your Birmingham London train ticket and save even more money on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are different types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when travelling from Birmingham to London? Use your calculator, taking into account:

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

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

C = average cost for a Birmingham London ticket (i.e.: £18.01)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Then divide that number by C. It will give you the minimum number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£18.01 = 4.89. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done on average 5 trips from Birmingham to London (one way trip).

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most adult fares, so you will save 1/3 on most train tickets.
