Discount Luton - Manchester train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age and your situation, you are able to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you pay less for your Luton Manchester train ticket.

  • The main benefit of getting a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to earn as much money as you spent.

    You will need to pay at least £88 of train tickets across the whole year for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you book afterwards, you will make savings.

    As an example, train tickets from Luton to Manchester cost on average £51.35 (1). By dividing £88 by £51.35 (£88/£51.35 = 1.71), it appears that after only 2 one way journeys from Manchester to Luton, the railcard will have paid for itself.

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