Discount Reading - Doncaster train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you are able to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to pay less for your Reading Doncaster train ticket.

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Reading to Doncaster? 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 Reading Doncaster ticket (i.e.: £41.25)(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/£41.25 = 2.13. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 3 trips from Reading to Doncaster (one way trip).

The cost to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a whole year.
