Tips on how to book cheaper train tickets

Put a plan in place

If you know when you’ll need to take the train from Leeds to Glasgow, then get ahead of the game and book an Advance ticket. You’ll be able to pick your own specific seat and could get more than half off the price of your fare.

Invest in a Railcard

The long journey up to Scotland comes with heftier fares, but you could get a 1/3 reduction by investing in a Railcard. It won’t just save you money on this trip, but most rail journeys for a full year too!

Time it right

Sometimes travelling at Peak times is unavoidable, but if you’re able to skip rush hour, why not get an Off-Peak service. You’ll benefit from a quieter carriage and a cheaper fare to boot.
