Depending on your age and your situation, you might want to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you make great savings for your Liverpool Swansea train ticket.

  • If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to estimate the number of journeys you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

    For your evaluation, you need to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, how much you're saving on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Liverpool Swansea ticket is £69.30 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £69.30: £88/£69.30 = 1.27. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Swansea to Liverpool (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.
