To take advantage of the best prices you will need to prove you are a leisure traveller, en route to gatwick airport, so you will need to give either yr flight numbers or your holiday booking reference. I don't think you will need to provide this when you arrive at stafford station but you may be asked to provide them on yr journey from the station to the airport.
Going to the airport by train is great, you can take a nap, read (even at night), play a game, or just stare out of the window... The other caveat to buying these inexpensive tickets from the station to the airport is that there must be at least two adults travelling together. But another great advantage is that children go free. All children under five go free, and then one child over five but under 16 per adult travelling by train to gatwick airport.
be sure to leave plenty of time to get to gatwick airport early enough to eat, shop and so on, so check the times of trains from stafford station before you go. If you have time to kill at the airport you can always read a book or play travel scrabble again! As you have bought your train ticket in advance, you don't need to worry about the opening hours of stafford station.
