Discount London - Liverpool train tickets

National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're travelling by train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you might want to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you save money for your London Liverpool train ticket.

  • In order to understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you can calculate the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    For your calculation, you need to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a London Liverpool ticket is £62.61 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £62.61: £88/£62.61 = 1.41. You will need to make about 2 trips from Liverpool to London (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.

  • Railcards enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a year. A Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other ones £30.
