Discount Sunderland - Whitby train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Sunderland Whitby 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. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 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.

Why should I buy a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Sunderland to Whitby? Use your calculator, considering:

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

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

C = average cost for a Sunderland Whitby 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 Sunderland to Whitby (one way trip).

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

The price to get a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to buy the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most rail fares for one year.
