The easiest way to spend less on your Oxford Nottingham train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

Why should I buy a railcard?

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Oxford to Nottingham? 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 Oxford Nottingham ticket (i.e.: £44.25)(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/£44.25 = 1.99. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Oxford to Nottingham (one way trip).

The price to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most adult fares for an entire year.
