Discount London - Leeds train tickets

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 savings that you can make with a railcard, you have to calculate how many trips you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

For your calculation, you have to include the cost of your railcard, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a London Leeds ticket is £48.60 (1).

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £48.60: £88/£48.60 = 1.81. It will take you about 2 trips from Leeds to London (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

The cost to get a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save a third off most rail fares for a complete year.
