if you are a travelling between Leeds and Birmingham the cheapest way to travel between the two cities on Crosscountry before 0930 Monday to Friday if you are returning the same day is NOT to buy an anytime return ticket at a cost of £76 BUT to purchase 3 seperate anytime day return tickets Leeds to Sheffield £10.20 Sheffield to Derby £15.30 and Derby to Birmingham £13.60 which will cost you £49.10 in total saving you £26.90 which is a lot of money.You could save even more money if you was travelling of peak after 0930 but on the return journey from Birmingham off peak tickets to Derby are not valid between 1515 and 1815 ,the grand total of the 3 seperate off peak tickets come to £27 which gives you a massive saving of £49. PLEASE BUY YOUR SEPERATE TICKETS AT THE TRAVEL CENTRES AS YOU CANNOT PURCHASE TICKETS LIKE THIS ON BOARD THE TRAIN
, If you boarded the train with no ticket and purchased one from the conductor and then stayed on the service then you would be over distanced and charged the operate fare for the journey you are making to the next station and thus not saving any money
Summary: Cheap rail fares
