Discount Glasgow - Blackpool train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Glasgow Blackpool train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Glasgow to Blackpool? Use your calculator, considering:

    A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

    B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average cost for a Glasgow Blackpool ticket (i.e.: £32.49)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will give 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 journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£32.49 = 2.71. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 3 trips from Glasgow to Blackpool (one way trip).

  • The cost to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a complete year.
