There are many types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • 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 Portsmouth? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

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

    C = average fare for a Plymouth Portsmouth ticket (i.e.: £49.56)(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/£49.56 = 1.78. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Plymouth to Portsmouth (one way journey).
