While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

  • If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to evaluate how many trips you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. It will take you approximately 2 trips from Cheltenham to Bristol (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.
