Discount Ipswich - Cambridge train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your Ipswich Cambridge 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.

  • If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to estimate the number of journeys you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

    For your evaluation, you need to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, how much you're saving on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Ipswich Cambridge ticket is £50.00 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Cambridge to Ipswich (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.

  • The cost to purchase a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most train fares for a whole year.
