Discount London - Bedford train tickets

The best way to pay less on your London 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. 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.

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from London to Bedford? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a London Bedford ticket (i.e.: £14.88)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£14.88 = 5.91. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 6 trips from London to Bedford (one way journey).
