While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country.

  • When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from York to Lancaster? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average price for a York Lancaster ticket (i.e.: £57.10)(1)

    Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£57.10 = 1.54. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from York to Lancaster (one way journey).

  • 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 complete year.
