Do you want to travel at the lowest fares? Many railcards and tricks can be obtained to pay less for your Bristol Cambridge train ticket and make even more savings on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are five types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Bristol to Cambridge? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

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

    Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.

    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 Bristol to Cambridge (one way journey).

  • 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.
