While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom.

National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

How much can I save with a railcard?

The main benefit of getting a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to earn as much money as you spent.

You will need to pay at least £88 of train tickets across the whole year for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you book afterwards, you will make savings.

As an example, train tickets from Reading to Cheltenham cost on average £20.79 (1). By dividing £88 by £20.79 (£88/£20.79 = 4.23), it appears that after only 5 one way journeys from Cheltenham to Reading, the railcard will have paid for itself.
