Railcards can enable you to make great savings for your Glasgow Bristol train ticket.

How much can I save with a railcard?

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Glasgow to Bristol? 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 Glasgow Bristol ticket (i.e.: £79.12)(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/£79.12 = 1.11. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Glasgow to Bristol (one way journey).
