Discount Southampton - Blackpool train tickets

National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're taking the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you might want 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 make great savings for your Southampton Blackpool train ticket.

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Southampton to Blackpool? 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 Southampton Blackpool ticket (i.e.: £73.97)(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/£73.97 = 1.19. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Southampton to Blackpool (one way journey).

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
