Railcards can help you make great savings for your Edinburgh Birmingham train ticket.

  • When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Edinburgh to Birmingham? Check with your calculator, considering:

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

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

    C = average price for a Edinburgh Birmingham ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
