The most efficient way to spend less on your London Bristol train ticket may be to have a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior discount card, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons railcard.
Why should I buy a railcard?
When purchasing a railcard, the idea is to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from London to Bristol? Check with your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for a London Bristol ticket (i.e.: £47.71)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. The result is the approximate number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£47.71 = 1.84. Your railcard will be worth the investment if you're doing around 2 trips from London to Bristol (one way trip).
How much do I need to pay for a railcard?
The price to get a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to buy a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save a third off most rail fares for an entire year.
