Discount Swansea - Bournemouth train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Swansea Bournemouth 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.

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can estimate the number of journeys you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    For your assessment, you have to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, your savings on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Swansea Bournemouth ticket is £50.00 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make about 2 trips from Bournemouth to Swansea (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.

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