Discount Edinburgh - Ely train tickets

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

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Edinburgh to Ely? Use your calculator, considering:

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

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

C = average cost for a Edinburgh Ely ticket (i.e.: £82.20)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£82.20 = 1.07. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Edinburgh to Ely (one way trip).

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