The easiest way to pay less on your Leicester Shrewsbury 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 Shrewsbury? 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 Shrewsbury 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 Shrewsbury (one way trip).
Railcards enable you to save 34% off most adult fares for 12 months. A Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the five other ones £30.
