Discount Manchester - Nottingham train tickets

Depending on your age as well as your situation, you can get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to save money for your Manchester Nottingham train ticket.

If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to assess the number of journeys you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £26.40: £88/£26.40 = 3.33. You will need to make approximately 4 trips from Nottingham to Manchester (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.
