Discount Hull - Cardiff train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Hull Cardiff 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.

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can calculate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

For your assessment, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Hull Cardiff ticket is £50.00 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. It will take you about 2 trips from Cardiff to Hull (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.

Railcards enable you to get a third off most rail fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
