Discount Dundee - Aberdeen train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Dundee Aberdeen 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 citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • The main benefit of using a railcard is that you only need a few trips to be profitable.

    You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity 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 buy after that, you will save money.

    For instance, train tickets from Dundee to Aberdeen cost on average £19.45 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £19.45 (£88/£19.45 = 4.52), it turns out that after only 5 one way trips from Aberdeen to Dundee, the card will have paid for itself.

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