Discount Southampton - London train tickets

The most efficient way to pay less on your Southampton London train ticket may be to get 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.

National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

Why should I buy a railcard?

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

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a Southampton London ticket (i.e.: £26.89)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£26.89 = 3.27. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 4 trips from Southampton to London (one way journey).

What is the cost of a railcard?

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.
