Discount Croydon - Brighton train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Croydon Brighton train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Croydon to Brighton? Use your calculator, taking into account:

    A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

    C = average cost for a Croydon Brighton ticket (i.e.: £23.90)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£23.90 = 3.68. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 4 trips from Croydon to Brighton (one way journey).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
