Going to Leeds Open Day on 22nd June. Need to get there around 10/11am.
Can depart around 15:00.

Out of the three I am the only one with a YPR. The prices I am finding at the moment are quite high.

Any help would be appreciated to try and lower the cost i.e. changes and splitting tickets!

Thanks!

In the grand context of things, the Advance tickets on offer for those times are very good value and are some of the lowest price tiers you will find on direct East Coast services. £18 out £23 return = £41 (£62 without railcard).

I can't find any cheaper alternatives on Grand Central.

Also with the East Coast small group offer, all passengers can get a third off irrespective of whether or not they have railcards as three people are travelling.

I have not been able to find savings on the direct fares, but just note that you need to book at www.eastcoast.co.uk to get the cheapest prices as as well as the small group discount, they also give around 10% off their cheapest Advance fares.

It appears that there are less than 3 Advance tickets at the lowest tier currently available, available in at least one direction, so if you search for 1 ticket you will get lower prices per person than if you search for 3.

Right. Here's what I have found:

1) Booking a return journey:
Outward: Dep KGX 08:35. Arr LDS 10:49 - £76.20 for 3 people.
Return: Dep LDS 16:15. Arr KGX 18:30 - £76.20 for 3 people.

Total Cost: £152.40. Therefore individual cost: £50.80


2) Two singles:
Outward: Dep KGX 08:35. Arr LDS 10:49 - £18.40 with a YPR, £27.90 without. Total for single: £74.20.
Return: Dep LDS 16:15. Arr KGX 18:30 - £23.65 with a YPR, £35.80 without. Total for single: £95.25.

Total Cost: £169.45.
