Discount Oxford - Leeds train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your Oxford Leeds 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Oxford to Leeds? Check with your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a Oxford Leeds ticket (i.e.: £95.20)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£95.20 = 0.92. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 1 trips from Oxford to Leeds (one way trip).

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