Discount Southampton - Colchester train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Southampton Colchester 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.

  • The main benefit of purchasing a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to break even.

    You will need to buy at least £88 of train tickets in a year for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you purchase afterwards, you will spare money.

    As an example, train tickets from Southampton to Colchester cost on average £50.00 (1). When dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), you can see that after only 2 one way journeys from Colchester to Southampton, the railcard will have paid for itself.

  • Railcards enable you to get a third off most rail fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
