Discount Carlisle - Edinburgh train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Carlisle Edinburgh train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

  • The main benefit of getting a railcard is that you only need a few trips to earn as much money as you spent.

    You will need to pay at least £88 of train tickets across the whole year for the railcard to be worth the investment. It corresponds to the price of the card, thirty pounds, divided by the saving, thirty four percent. On every train that you book after that, you will make savings.

    For instance, train tickets from Carlisle to Edinburgh cost on average £14.40 (1). By dividing £88 by £14.40 (£88/£14.40 = 6.11), it appears that after only 7 one way trips from Edinburgh to Carlisle, the card will have paid for itself.

  • Railcards enable you to get a third off most adult fares for a year. The Disabled persons railcard costs £20 and the 5 other railcards £30.
