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 the benefits of a railcard, you need to evaluate the number of trips you need to break even. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £82.28: £88/£82.28 = 1.07. It will take you on average 2 trips from Coventry to Edinburgh (one way trip) with your railcard to be profitable.
