The most efficient way to spend less on your Plymouth Birmingham 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.
How much can I save with a railcard?
When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Plymouth to Birmingham? Use your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average cost for a Plymouth Birmingham ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Plymouth to Birmingham (one way journey).
What is the cost of a railcard?
The price to purchase a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most train fares for an entire year.
