Discount York - Manchester train tickets

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

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from York to Manchester? Use your calculator, considering:

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

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

C = average cost for a York Manchester ticket (i.e.: £24.76)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£24.76 = 3.55. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 4 trips from York to Manchester (one way trip).

What is the cost of a railcard?

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