Discount Edinburgh to Coventry train tickets

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

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you need to calculate the number of trips you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

    For your evaluation, you need to include the cost of your railcard, for instance £30, the discount on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a Edinburgh Coventry ticket is £50.00 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make about 2 trips from Coventry to Edinburgh (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.

  • 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.
