Dales Railcard Winter Offer 2022/23 on the Bentham and Settle-Carlisle Lines

Whilst the trains are quieter, enjoy a scenic winter journey along the Bentham Line.

The latest winter offer for the holders of a Dales Railcard takes a different format. To enable far more holders to benefit from the offer for more of their journeys, this time the discount on off-peak day return tickets is being increased from 34% to 50% right through until 1st April 2023. There are no excluded dates, however, the normal Dales Railcard conditions of travel apply. Consequently, the offer is available at anytime on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays and after 08:15 Mondays to Fridays.
