Discount Sheffield - Manchester train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Sheffield Manchester 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to calculate how many trips you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

For your evaluation, you need to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Sheffield Manchester ticket is £11.41 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £11.41: £88/£11.41 = 7.72. It will take you approximately 8 trips from Manchester to Sheffield (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.

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