The most efficient way to pay less on your Lancaster Wigan train ticket may be to get a railcard.

Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the 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.

  • When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Lancaster to Wigan? Grab your calculator, considering:

    A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

    B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average fare for a Lancaster Wigan ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

    Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Lancaster to Wigan (one way trip).
