Discount Birmingham - Swindon train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Birmingham Swindon 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

  • When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Birmingham to Swindon? Grab your calculator, considering:

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

    B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average fare for a Birmingham Swindon ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

    Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Birmingham to Swindon (one way trip).

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