Discount Swansea - London train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Swansea London 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.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Swansea to London? Grab your calculator, considering:

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

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average fare for a Swansea London ticket (i.e.: £35.87)(1)

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

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£35.87 = 2.45. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 3 trips from Swansea to London (one way trip).

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
