The easiest way to pay less on your Southampton Brighton train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to assess the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

For your calculation, you must include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, the discount on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a Southampton Brighton ticket is £17.70 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £17.70: £88/£17.70 = 4.97. You will need to make on average 5 trips from Brighton to Southampton (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.
