Discount Portsmouth - Leicester train tickets

National Railcards can offer great value for money if you're travelling by train. Depending on your age and your situation, you can get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you save money for your Portsmouth Leicester train ticket.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Portsmouth to Leicester? Use your calculator, considering:

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

    B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average cost for a Portsmouth Leicester ticket (i.e.: £52.88)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will give 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 journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£52.88 = 1.66. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Portsmouth to Leicester (one way trip).

  • Railcards enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
