Discount Leicester - Oxford train tickets

Do you want to travel at the lowest fares? Many railcards and tricks can be obtained to pay less for your Leicester Oxford train ticket and make even more savings on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are several 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 trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Leicester to Oxford? Use your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average cost for a Leicester Oxford ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will show 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 trips needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Leicester to Oxford (one way journey).

The price to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most adult fares for an entire year.
