Can I get a discount if I don’t have a Railcard?

Yes, you can get a discount if you don’t have a Railcard. There are some great discounts to be had if you’re travelling as a group and will be together for the whole journey. We’ve got them all covered in Railsmartr.

Discounts without Railcards

  • You can find discounts for just two people travelling on many Northern routes, as well as Gatwick Express and Stansted Express. This usually means 1/2 off for the second adult.
  • GroupSave discounts offer 1/3 off for three or more people travelling together. You’ll find these with most train operators servicing South East England. They’re also available with GWR which serves Devon, Cornwall and South Wales. There are lots of cities and top destinations in the GroupSave area – including trains to Bedford, Bristol, Cambridge, Cornwall, Exeter, London, Oxford and Reading. If you’re travelling to the South Coast you’ll also find GroupSave discounts on trains to Brighton, Bournemouth, Dover, Portsmouth and Southampton. Some GroupSave discounts are also available between London and Birmingham, provided you travel with Chiltern Railways or West Midlands Trains. Unfortunately, the discounts don’t apply on Avanti West Coast.
  • Some group discounts on East Midlands Railway and ScotRail, as well as family tickets on Avanti West Coast and LNER.

    Wherever there’s a group discount, we’ve got it covered. You can find out more about Group Tickets  here.
