Cardiff Bath train

Discount Cardiff - Bath train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Cardiff Bath train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 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.

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 Cardiff Bath ticket is £12.42 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £12.42: £88/£12.42 = 7.09. You will need to make approximately 8 trips from Bath to Cardiff (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.

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