Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

How much can I save with a 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.

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £16.26: £88/£16.26 = 5.41. It will take you about 6 trips from Blackburn to Manchester (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.
