Discount London - Bradford train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your London Bradford train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

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.

For instance, train tickets from London to Bradford cost on average £50.00 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), it turns out that after only 2 one way trips from Bradford to London, the card will have paid for itself.
