Discount Glasgow - London train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're taking the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you might want to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to save money for your Glasgow London train ticket.

  • If you want to understand the benefits of a railcard, you need to estimate how many journeys you need to break even. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

    For your evaluation, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, the discount on each trip (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a Glasgow London ticket is £69.70 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £69.70: £88/£69.70 = 1.26. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from London to Glasgow (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.

  • The cost to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to buy a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get 34% off most train fares for a complete year.
