Discount Leicester - Birmingham train tickets

Looking to travel for less? Many railcards and discounts are available to spend less for your Leicester Birmingham train ticket and save even more money on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are many types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Leicester to Birmingham? Use your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average cost for a Leicester Birmingham ticket (i.e.: £13.60)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£13.60 = 6.47. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 7 trips from Leicester to Birmingham (one way journey).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most adult fares, hence you will save 1/3 on most train tickets.
