The easiest way to pay less on your Leicester Coventry 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.
When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Leicester to Coventry? Use your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average cost for a Leicester Coventry ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will give 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 journeys needed across the year to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Leicester to Coventry (one way trip).
The price to get a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to buy the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most rail fares for an entire year.
