The most efficient way to pay less on your Colchester Reading 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.
When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Colchester to Reading? Grab your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a Colchester Reading ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Colchester to Reading (one way journey).
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.
