Discount Coventry - Edinburgh train tickets

National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're taking the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you might want to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to make great savings for your Coventry Edinburgh train ticket.

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Coventry to Edinburgh? Use your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average cost for a Coventry Edinburgh ticket (i.e.: £179.57)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£179.57 = 0.49. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 1 trips from Coventry to Edinburgh (one way trip).

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
