Discount Manchester - Brighton 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 are able to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to pay less for your Manchester Brighton train ticket.

  • 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 Manchester Brighton ticket is £81.73 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £81.73: £88/£81.73 = 1.08. It will take you about 2 trips from Brighton to Manchester (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.

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