Discount Doncaster - Liverpool train tickets

The most efficient way to pay less on your Doncaster Liverpool 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 buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Doncaster to Liverpool? 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 Doncaster Liverpool ticket (i.e.: £42.60)(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/£42.60 = 2.07. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 3 trips from Doncaster to Liverpool (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.
