Discount Watford - Preston train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Watford Preston 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.

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

    You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity 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 buy afterwards, you will save money.

    As an example, train tickets from Watford to Preston cost on average £50.00 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), it turns out that after only 2 one way journeys from Preston to Watford, the railcard will have paid for itself.

  • 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.
