Discount Cambridge - Coventry train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Cambridge Coventry 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Cambridge to Coventry? Use your calculator, considering:

    A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

    B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

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

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Cambridge to Coventry (one way trip).

  • 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.
