Discount Portsmouth - Plymouth train tickets

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

  • The main benefit of using a railcard is that you only need a few trips to be profitable.

    You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity for the railcard to pay for itsfel. It corresponds to the price of the card, thirty pounds, divided by the saving, thirty four percent. On every train that you buy after that, you will save money.

    For instance, train tickets from Portsmouth to Plymouth cost on average £50.00 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), it turns out that after only 2 one way trips from Plymouth to Portsmouth, the card will have paid for itself.
