Discount London - Oxford train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the 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 save money for your London Oxford train ticket.

To understand how much you can save with a railcard, you need to evaluate how many journeys you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

For your assessment, you must include the cost of your railcard, for instance £30, the discount on each journey (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a London Oxford ticket is £21.23 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £21.23: £88/£21.23 = 4.15. It will take you approximately 5 trips from Oxford to London (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.
