The best way to pay less on your Edinburgh Croydon train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.
The main benefit of purchasing a railcard is that you only need a couple of trips to earn as much money as you spent.
You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets in a year for the railcard to break-even. It corresponds to the cost of the card, £30, divided by the saving, 34%. On every train that you book after that, you will make savings.
As an example, train tickets from Edinburgh to Croydon cost on average £50.00 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £50.00 (£88/£50.00 = 1.76), it turns out that after only 2 one way trips from Croydon to Edinburgh, the card will have paid for itself.
All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, thus you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
