Discount Leeds - Cambridge train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Leeds Cambridge 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.

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can evaluate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    For your assessment, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Leeds Cambridge ticket is £49.63 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £49.63: £88/£49.63 = 1.77. It will take you about 2 trips from Cambridge to Leeds (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.

  • 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.
