The most efficient 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 UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.
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? 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 cost for a London Cambridge ticket (i.e.: £9.93)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Then divide that number by C. It will give you the average number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£9.93 = 8.87. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing at least 9 trips from London to Cambridge (one way trip).
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.
