Railcard Savings

Posted on 27 August 2004 in Transport (No comments)

My very last Young Persons Railcard expired on 13 August 2004 - I'm now too old for one and train fares will now be sadly, more expensive. At least outside the South East they will - I have a Network Gold Card to cover that area.

Anyway for the last year I've kept almost all of my tickets with the aim of finding out just how much money its saved me. And because I'm boring like that, here's the information in a table.

Which just goes to show that a little money spent, can save you a lot more.
