Discount Peterborough - Southampton train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Peterborough Southampton 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.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to estimate the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

For your calculation, you must include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, the discount on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a Peterborough Southampton ticket is £72.61 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £72.61: £88/£72.61 = 1.21. You will need to make on average 2 trips from Southampton to Peterborough (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.

What is the cost of a railcard?

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.
