Southampton London train

Discount Southampton - London train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Southampton London train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons railcard.

How much can I save with a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Southampton to London? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average cost for a Southampton London ticket (i.e.: £27.52)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£27.52 = 3.2. Your railcard will be worth the investment after at least 4 trips from Southampton to London (one way trip).

What is the cost of a railcard?

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
