Depending on your age and your situation, you are able to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to pay less for your London Birmingham train ticket.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

To understand how much you can save with a railcard, you need to estimate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £27.14: £88/£27.14 = 3.24. It will take you approximately 4 trips from Birmingham to London (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.
