Discount Plymouth - Derby train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your Plymouth Derby 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

  • When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Plymouth to Derby? 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 Plymouth Derby ticket (i.e.: £50.60)(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/£50.60 = 1.74. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Plymouth to Derby (one way journey).

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