Discount Sheffield - Bournemouth 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 Sheffield Bournemouth train ticket.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Sheffield to Bournemouth? Use your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average cost for a Sheffield Bournemouth ticket (i.e.: £69.66)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£69.66 = 1.26. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Sheffield to Bournemouth (one way journey).

  • Railcards enable you to save 34% off most train fares for 12 months. A Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the five other ones £30.
