The easiest way to pay less on your Glasgow Sheffield 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

  • To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to calculate how many trips you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £79.95: £88/£79.95 = 1.1. It will take you on average 2 trips from Sheffield to Glasgow (one way journey) with your railcard to start saving money.
