National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age and your situation, you can get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you pay less for your London Leeds train ticket.

Why should I buy a railcard?

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you need to evaluate the number of trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

For your calculation, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a London Leeds ticket is £45.60 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £45.60: £88/£45.60 = 1.93. You will need to make about 2 trips from Leeds to London (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.
