Discount Reading - Luton train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Reading Luton 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 calculate how many trips 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 railcard cost, for instance £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Reading Luton ticket is £31.00 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £31.00: £88/£31.00 = 2.84. It will take you approximately 3 trips from Luton to Reading (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.

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