Discount Cardiff - Blackpool train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Cardiff Blackpool 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.

How much can I save with a railcard?

The main benefit of getting a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to earn as much money as you spent.

You will need to pay at least £88 of train tickets across the whole year for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you book afterwards, you will make savings.

As an example, train tickets from Cardiff to Blackpool cost on average £66.68 (1). By dividing £88 by £66.68 (£88/£66.68 = 1.32), it appears that after only 2 one way journeys from Blackpool to Cardiff, the railcard will have paid for itself.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

The cost to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a complete year.
