Exeter London train

Discount Exeter - London train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Exeter London train ticket must be 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 country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior discount card, Two together discount card, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

Why should I buy a railcard?

If you want to understand the benefits of a railcard, you have to estimate how many trips you need to make earnings. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

For your evaluation, you need to include the railcard cost, i.e £30, the discount on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Exeter London ticket is £47.37 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £47.37: £88/£47.37 = 1.86. You will need to make about 2 trips from London to Exeter (one way journey) with your railcard to start saving money.

What is the cost of a railcard?

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