Discount Manchester - Liverpool train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Manchester Liverpool train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. 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?

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 Liverpool cost on average £8.20 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £8.20 (£88/£8.20 = 10.73), it turns out that after only 11 one way journeys from Liverpool to Manchester, the railcard will have paid for itself.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

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