Exeter London train

Discount Exeter - London train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Exeter London 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

How much can I save with a railcard?

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can estimate the number of journeys you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

For your assessment, you have to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, your savings on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Exeter London ticket is £33.67 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £33.67: £88/£33.67 = 2.61. You will need to make about 3 trips from London to Exeter (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
