Discount Edinburgh - Coventry train tickets

The best way to pay less on your Edinburgh Coventry train ticket is probably to have a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons discount card.

  • To understand how much you can save with a railcard, you need to calculate how many journeys you need to save money. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

    For your evaluation, you have to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, the discount on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Edinburgh Coventry ticket is £69.99 (1).

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £69.99: £88/£69.99 = 1.26. You will need to make on average 2 trips from Coventry to Edinburgh (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most adult fares, so you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
