Discount London to Newcastle upon Tyne train tickets

National Railcards can offer great value for money if you're travelling by train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you might want to get one of the five different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you pay less for your London Newcastle upon Tyne train ticket.

  • When getting a railcard, you aim to make savings after several journeys. But is it really profitable when taking the train from London to Newcastle upon Tyne? Check with your calculator, considering:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average cost for a London Newcastle upon Tyne ticket (i.e.: £47.14)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. Now divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£47.14 = 1.87. Your railcard will be profitable once you will have done at least 2 trips from London to Newcastle upon Tyne (one way journey).

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