Blackpool Birmingham train

Discount Blackpool - Birmingham train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you are able to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to pay less for your Blackpool Birmingham train ticket.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Blackpool to Birmingham? Use your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

    B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average cost for a Blackpool Birmingham ticket (i.e.: £35.12)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£35.12 = 2.51. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 3 trips from Blackpool to Birmingham (one way journey).

  • 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.
