Discount Blackpool - Manchester train tickets

National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're taking the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you might want 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 make great savings for your Blackpool Manchester train ticket.

Why should I buy a railcard?

The main benefit of using a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to be profitable.

You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you buy afterwards, you will save money.
