Discount Luton - Birmingham train tickets

National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're taking the train. Depending on your age and your situation, you might want to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you make great savings for your Luton Birmingham train ticket.

The main benefit of using a railcard is that you only need a few trips to be profitable.

You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity for the railcard to be worth the investment. It corresponds to the price of the card, thirty pounds, divided by the saving, thirty four percent. On every train that you buy after that, you will save money.

For instance, train tickets from Luton to Birmingham cost on average £43.96 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £43.96 (£88/£43.96 = 2), it turns out that after only 3 one way trips from Birmingham to Luton, the card will have paid for itself.

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.
