Discount Manchester - Aberdeen train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Manchester Aberdeen train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

  • When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Manchester to Aberdeen? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

    B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average fare for a Manchester Aberdeen ticket (i.e.: £105.28)(1)

    Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£105.28 = 0.84. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 1 trips from Manchester to Aberdeen (one way journey).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
