The easiest way to pay less on your Leicester Durham train ticket is probably to buy a railcard.

Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK residents.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Leicester to Durham? Grab your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a Leicester Durham ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Leicester to Durham (one way journey).
All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
