Discount Luton - Loughborough train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Luton Loughborough train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to estimate the number of journeys you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

    For your evaluation, you need to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, how much you're saving on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Luton Loughborough ticket is £51.70 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £51.70: £88/£51.70 = 1.7. You will need to make approximately 2 trips from Loughborough to Luton (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.

  • 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.
