Discount London - Scarborough train tickets

The best way to spend less on your London Scarborough train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can evaluate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

For your assessment, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a London Scarborough ticket is £66.33 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £66.33: £88/£66.33 = 1.33. It will take you about 2 trips from Scarborough to London (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.

The cost to get a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to buy a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most rail fares for a complete year.
