Discount Derby - Glasgow train tickets

The most efficient way to pay less on your Derby Glasgow 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.

  • If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to assess 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 Derby Glasgow ticket is £50.00 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Glasgow to Derby (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
