National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're taking the train.

Railcards can enable you to make great savings for your Leicester Glasgow train ticket.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Leicester to Glasgow? 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 Glasgow 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 Glasgow (one way trip).

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

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 one year.
