Discount Glasgow - Southampton train tickets

There are 5 types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Glasgow to Southampton? Use your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average cost for a Glasgow Southampton ticket (i.e.: £128.86)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£128.86 = 0.68. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 1 trips from Glasgow to Southampton (one way journey).

How much does a railcard cost?

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