Discount Derby - Preston train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Derby Preston train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one 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?

If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to evaluate how many trips you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

For your evaluation, you need to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Derby Preston ticket is £50.00 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. It will take you approximately 2 trips from Preston to Derby (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

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.
