Plymouth London train

Discount Plymouth - London train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Plymouth London 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.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can evaluate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

For your assessment, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Plymouth London ticket is £51.54 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £51.54: £88/£51.54 = 1.71. It will take you about 2 trips from London to Plymouth (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.

How much does a railcard cost?

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 whole year.
