Discount Edinburgh - Dundee train tickets

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

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When getting a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really worth it when travelling from Edinburgh to Dundee? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a Edinburgh Dundee ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. You can now divide that number by C. The result is the average number of trips needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Edinburgh to Dundee (one way trip).

What is the cost of a railcard?

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