The easiest way to pay less on your Edinburgh Coventry train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain 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.

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can evaluate how many trips you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £87.75: £88/£87.75 = 1. It will take you about 2 trips from Coventry to Edinburgh (one way journey) with your railcard to break even.

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most rail fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
