Discount Portsmouth - Bristol train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Portsmouth Bristol 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Portsmouth to Bristol? Grab your calculator, considering:

    A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average fare for a Portsmouth Bristol ticket (i.e.: £31.53)(1)

    Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£31.53 = 2.79. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 3 trips from Portsmouth to Bristol (one way trip).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
