The best way to pay less on your Bournemouth Plymouth 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.
What are the benefits of a railcard?
When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Bournemouth to Plymouth? 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 Bournemouth Plymouth ticket (i.e.: £66.08)(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/£66.08 = 1.33. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Bournemouth to Plymouth (one way trip).
How much does a railcard cost?
All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
