Discount London - Bristol train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your London Bristol train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

Why should I buy a railcard?

When purchasing a railcard, you aim to make savings after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from London to Bristol? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average fare for a London Bristol ticket (i.e.: £55.86)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. Then divide that number by C. The result is the average number of journeys needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£55.86 = 1.58. Your railcard will be worth the investment if you're doing at least 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.
