The most efficient way to pay less on your Luton London train ticket must be to buy a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

  • The main benefit of purchasing a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to be profitable.

    You will need to pay at least £88 of train tickets across the whole year for the railcard to be worthwile. It corresponds to the cost of the card, £30, divided by the discount, thirty four percent. On every ticket that you buy after that, you will save money.

    For instance, train tickets from Luton to London cost on average £13.55 (1). By dividing £88 by £13.55 (£88/£13.55 = 6.5), it appears that after only 7 one way journeys from London to Luton, the railcard will have paid for itself.

How to find cheap train tickets Luton to London ?

If you want cheap train tickets Luton to London, you've come to the right place. Here we provide you some tricks for finding cheap train tickets.

  • The earlier you buy your ticket the cheaper it will be. You are able to save up to 80% on your train ticket by booking 12 weeks in advance. Why? Because train operators can release advance tickets up to 90 days before the date of departure and it is usually at this time that you will get the lowest fare.
  • The peak times to travel are during the morning commute time and in the late afternoon for your train ticket Luton to London. Train fares tend to be more expensive during these hours so you will save money by travelling very early, mid day or late in the evening.
  • It's very common that two singles are cheaper than a return ticket, we suggest you should consider checking both fares when travelling in order to spend less.
  • Another trick to pay less is to split up your journey to London. Instead of buying only one ticket for your route you can split the journey into different stages, and get a ticket for each stage.
