Discount Edinburgh - Derby train tickets

National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you are able to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to pay less for your Edinburgh Derby train ticket.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Edinburgh to Derby? Grab your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average fare for a Edinburgh Derby ticket (i.e.: £54.45)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£54.45 = 1.62. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Edinburgh to Derby (one way trip).

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