Discount Preston - Brighton train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Preston Brighton train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one 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.

How much can I save with a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Preston to Brighton? 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 Preston Brighton ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(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/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Preston to Brighton (one way trip).

What is the cost of a railcard?

Railcards enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
