Discount York - Blackpool train tickets

The best way to pay less on your York Blackpool 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from York to Blackpool? 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 York Blackpool ticket (i.e.: £24.31)(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/£24.31 = 3.62. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 4 trips from York to Blackpool (one way trip).

The cost to purchase a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most train fares for a whole year.
