Discount Cardiff - Paignton train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Cardiff Paignton 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.

Why should I buy a railcard?

The main benefit of using a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to be profitable.

You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity 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 buy afterwards, you will save money.

As an example, train tickets from Cardiff to Paignton cost on average £50.00 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), it turns out that after only 2 one way journeys from Paignton to Cardiff, the railcard will have paid for itself.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?
