The most efficient way to spend less on your Dundee Edinburgh train ticket is probably to get a railcard.

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.

Why should I buy a railcard?

When purchasing a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Dundee to Edinburgh? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

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

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

C = average cost for a Dundee Edinburgh ticket (i.e.: £12.16)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. You can now divide that number by C. You will see the minimum number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£12.16 = 7.23. Your railcard will be worthwile if you're doing at least 8 trips from Dundee to Edinburgh (one way trip).
