Depending on your age as well as your situation, you can get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to save money for your Liverpool Manchester train ticket.

How much can I save with a railcard?

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can calculate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.
