Discount London - Cambridge train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your London Cambridge train ticket may be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior discount card, Two together discount card, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons discount card.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When getting a railcard, the idea is to save money after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from London to Cambridge? Use your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a London Cambridge ticket (i.e.: £19.49)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. You will see the minimum 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/£19.49 = 4.52. Your railcard will be worth the investment after at least 5 trips from London to Cambridge (one way journey).

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

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