Discount Luton - Ipswich train tickets

Willing to travel for cheap? Many railcards and deals exist to spend less for your Luton Ipswich train ticket and save even more money on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are 5 types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Luton to Ipswich? 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 Ipswich ticket (i.e.: £80.60)(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/£80.60 = 1.09. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Luton to Ipswich (one way trip).

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