Discount Leicester - Bradford train tickets

Looking to travel for less? Many railcards and discounts are available to spend less for your Leicester Bradford train ticket and save even more money on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are five types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

  • When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Leicester to Bradford? Use your calculator, considering:

    A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

    B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

    C = average cost for a Leicester Bradford ticket (i.e.: £54.50)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£54.50 = 1.61. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Leicester to Bradford (one way trip).

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