The best way to spend less on your Eastbourne Bedford 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.

What are the benefits of a railcard?
If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to assess the number of journeys 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 cost of your railcard, i.e £30, how much you're saving on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Eastbourne Bedford ticket is £50.00 (1).
Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Bedford to Eastbourne (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.
How much do I need to pay for a railcard?
The cost to purchase a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most train fares for a whole year.
