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, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Birmingham to London? Grab 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.: £26.04)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. You can now divide that number by C. You will see the approximate number of trips needed per year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£26.04 = 3.38. Your railcard will be profitable after at least 4 trips from Birmingham to London (one way journey).

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.
