Discount Birmingham - Sheffield train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Birmingham Sheffield 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to estimate the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £20.39: £88/£20.39 = 4.32. You will need to make on average 5 trips from Sheffield to Birmingham (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.

How much does a railcard cost?
