Discount Leeds - Reading train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Leeds Reading 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

The main benefit of using a railcard is that you only need a few 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 railcard to be worth the investment. It corresponds to the price of the card, thirty pounds, divided by the saving, thirty four percent. On every train that you buy after that, you will save money.
