The best way to spend less on your Birmingham York 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.
Why should I buy a railcard?
The main benefit of purchasing a railcard is that you only need a few trips to break even.
You will need to buy at least £88 of train tickets in a year for the railcard to be worth the investment. It corresponds to the price of the card, thirty pounds, divided by the saving, thirty four percent. On every train that you purchase after that, you will spare money.
For instance, train tickets from Birmingham to York cost on average £73.70 (1). When dividing £88 by £73.70 (£88/£73.70 = 1.19), you can see that after only 2 one way trips from York to Birmingham, the card will have paid for itself.
What is the cost of a railcard?
All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most adult fares, hence you will save 1/3 on most train tickets.
