Discount Oxford - Southampton train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Oxford Southampton train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 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.

Why should I buy a railcard?

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Oxford to Southampton? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average fare for a Oxford Southampton ticket (i.e.: £30.38)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£30.38 = 2.9. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 3 trips from Oxford to Southampton (one way journey).

How much does a railcard cost?

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 complete year.
