Discount Luton - Bedford train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Luton 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 buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Luton to Bedford? Use your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average cost for a Luton Bedford ticket (i.e.: £7.60)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£7.60 = 11.58. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 12 trips from Luton to Bedford (one way trip).

Railcards enable you to get a third off most train fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
