Discount Edinburgh - Dundee train tickets

National Railcards can offer great value for money if you're travelling by train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you can get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to save money for your Edinburgh Dundee train ticket.

Why should I buy a railcard?

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from Edinburgh to Dundee? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average price for a Edinburgh Dundee ticket (i.e.: £18.44)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£18.44 = 4.77. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 5 trips from Edinburgh to Dundee (one way journey).

What is the cost of a railcard?

The price to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most adult fares for an entire year.
