The best way to spend less on your Stafford Blackpool 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.
When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Stafford to Blackpool? Use your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average cost for a Stafford Blackpool ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.
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 Stafford to Blackpool (one way journey).
Railcards enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
