Discount London - Blackburn train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your London Blackburn train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from London to Blackburn? Use your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average cost for a London Blackburn ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.

    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 London to Blackburn (one way journey).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most adult fares, hence you will save 1/3 on most train tickets.
