Looking to travel for less? Many railcards and discounts are available to spend less for your Glasgow Portsmouth train ticket and save even more money on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are five types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from Glasgow to Portsmouth? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average price for a Glasgow Portsmouth ticket (i.e.: £81.77)(1)

    Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£81.77 = 1.08. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Glasgow to Portsmouth (one way journey).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
