Discount Wigan - Blackpool train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Wigan Blackpool 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.

  • 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 Wigan Blackpool 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 Blackpool to Wigan (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most adult fares, hence you will save 1/3 on most train tickets.
