Depending on your age and your situation, you might want to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you make great savings for your Manchester Cambridge train ticket.
When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Manchester to Cambridge? Check with your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for a Manchester Cambridge ticket (i.e.: £79.38)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£79.38 = 1.11. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Manchester to Cambridge (one way trip).
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.
