Which Bradford to Halifax train tickets do I need?

There are different types of train tickets available from Bradford to Halifax. Check the types of tickets offered before you book so that you bag the best price. 

The type of ticket you get and price you pay for your journey will depend on certain factors, such as when you want to travel and the number of people that you’ll be travelling with. For instance, if you know the exact date and time you want to travel, you might find that an Advance ticket is the best option for you.

Another factor is whether you’re staying in Halifax or heading back to Bradford. You’ll need a Return ticket if you’re not staying, but if Halifax is your final stop, you’ll need a Single ticket.  

The time of day you travel is also important. If you’re happy to avoid the rush hour, you could save money and enjoy a quieter journey with our Off-peak fares
