The best way to spend less on your Glasgow Wakefield train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £80.00: £88/£80.00 = 1.1. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Wakefield to Glasgow (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.
