The best way to pay less on your Edinburgh Grimsby train ticket is probably to buy 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 a certain railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons discount card.
Why should I buy a railcard?
When purchasing a railcard, the idea is to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Edinburgh to Grimsby? Grab your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a Edinburgh Grimsby ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
Initially, 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. It will give you the approximate number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity 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 at least 2 trips from Edinburgh to Grimsby (one way trip).
How much do I need to pay for a railcard?
All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards give you 34% off most adult fares, hence you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
