Cardiff Brighton train

Discount Cardiff - Brighton train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Cardiff Brighton train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. 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.

How much can I save with a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Cardiff to Brighton? Use your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average cost for a Cardiff Brighton ticket (i.e.: £60.02)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£60.02 = 1.47. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Cardiff to Brighton (one way journey).

How much does a railcard cost?

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