Discount Bristol - Swansea train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Bristol Swansea 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.

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

For your evaluation, you need to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, how much you're saving on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Bristol Swansea ticket is £50.00 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Swansea to Bristol (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.

Railcards enable you to get a third off most rail fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
