The best way to pay less on your Durham Reading train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one 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.
The main benefit of getting a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to earn as much money as you spent.
You will need to pay at least £88 of train tickets across the whole year 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 book afterwards, you will make savings.
