Looking for travel at the lowest fares? Many railcards and reductions are available to pay less for your London Manchester train ticket and save even more money on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are many different types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.
Most of these railcards are bought in order to receive better discounts. But is it really worth it for travelling from London to Manchester? Check with your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30.00)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for an London Manchester return ticket (i.e.: £28.52)(1)
First, divide A by B and multiply by 100: this will give you the budget from which the card will be amortized. Then divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips that you will do to cushion the railcard.
In our example, A x B = 30/34 x 100 = £88.00. Then, 88/28.5219 = 3.09. It takes at least 3.09 trips from London to Manchester round trip (or 4-ways) for the purchase of the railcard to be worthwhile!
For your information, all railcards cost £30.00 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20.00. Railcards typically give you 34% off most adult fares, so you will save 1/3 on rail fares.
