The best way to pay less on your Reading Glasgow train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one 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.

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can calculate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £88.06: £88/£88.06 = 1. It will take you about 1 trips from Glasgow to Reading (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.
