The easiest way to spend less on your Edinburgh Cheltenham train ticket is probably to buy a railcard.

Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Edinburgh to Cheltenham? Grab your calculator, considering:

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

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

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

Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Edinburgh to Cheltenham (one way trip).
