The best way to pay less on your Southampton Plymouth 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.
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 Plymouth ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will give 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 journeys needed across the year to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Southampton to Plymouth (one way trip).
