London Bristol train

Discount London - Bristol train tickets

The best way to pay less on your London Bristol train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

How much can I save with a railcard?

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from London to Bristol? Grab 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.: £47.54)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£47.54 = 1.85. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from London to Bristol (one way journey).

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

The price to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most adult fares for one year.
