Depending on your age and your situation, you can get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you save money for your Derby Manchester train ticket.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Derby to Manchester? 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 Derby Manchester 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 Derby to Manchester (one way journey).
