Train ticket types for your travel

Rail tickets may look a bit complex at first sight but it's simple to apprehend their functioning. To begin, there are three main rail tickets types available in the UK for your train Swansea to London: Advance, Off-Peak and Anytime tickets.

  • Advance Ticket : They are a great manner to obtain cheap tickets. Advance train tickets are accessible up to 12 weeks before travel and offer the biggest discounts.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When getting a railcard, you aim to save money after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Swansea to London? Use your calculator, taking into account:

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

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

C = average cost for a Swansea London ticket (i.e.: £36.02)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be efficient. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£36.02 = 2.44. Your railcard will be worth the investment if you're doing at least 3 trips from Swansea to London (one way journey).
