There are different types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when travelling from London to Bath? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

    B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average price for a London Bath ticket (i.e.: £35.18)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be efficient. Then divide that number by C. It will give you the minimum number of trips needed per year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£35.18 = 2.5. Your railcard will be worth the investment if you're doing at least 3 trips from London to Bath (one way trip).

How to find cheap train tickets London to Bath ?

Finding cheap train tickets can be challenging as taking the train can cost a lot. Thus we wanted to highlight our tips to find cheap train tickets London to Bath.

  • Getting your ticket early instead of leaving it until the last minute will help you to get a lower fare. Advance tickets typically go on sale 3 months before the date of departure. On many routes you can save as much as 80% by purchasing your ticket 90 days in advance. We suggest you to purchase your ticket as soon as you can.
  • The peak times to travel are during the morning commute time and in the late afternoon for your train ticket London to Bath. Train fares are more expensive during these times so you will save money by travelling very early, in the middle of the day or late in the evening.
  • For some trains, it is cheaper to book two singles rather than a return ticket. It gives less flexibility as you need to know in advance the time you wish to take the return journey but cheaper fares might be available.
  • Another trick to pay less is to split up your journey to Bath. Rather than purchasing only one ticket for your trip you can divide the journey into different sections, and purchase a ticket for each part of the journey.
