The best way to pay less on your Ipswich York 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.

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from Ipswich to York? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a Ipswich York ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Ipswich to York (one way journey).
