Discount Manchester - Derby train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age and your situation, you are able to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you pay less for your Manchester Derby train ticket.

The main benefit of using a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to be profitable.

You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you buy afterwards, you will save money.

As an example, train tickets from Manchester to Derby cost on average £50.00 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), it turns out that after only 2 one way journeys from Derby to Manchester, the railcard will have paid for itself.

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
