Discount Luton - Derby train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your Luton Derby train ticket is probably 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 UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

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 Derby cost on average £40.95 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £40.95 (£88/£40.95 = 2.15), it turns out that after only 3 one way trips from Derby to Luton, the card will have paid for itself.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

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