Discount Birmingham - Dundee train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Birmingham Dundee train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can evaluate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    For your assessment, you have to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, your savings on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Birmingham Dundee ticket is £154.79 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £154.79: £88/£154.79 = 0.57. It will take you about 1 trips from Dundee to Birmingham (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.
