Discount Oxford - Portsmouth train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Oxford Portsmouth 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from Oxford to Portsmouth? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average price for a Oxford Portsmouth ticket (i.e.: £34.86)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£34.86 = 2.52. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 3 trips from Oxford to Portsmouth (one way journey).

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