Discount Birmingham - Oxford train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Birmingham Oxford train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to calculate 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 Oxford ticket is £22.30 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £22.30: £88/£22.30 = 3.95. It will take you approximately 4 trips from Oxford to Birmingham (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.

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