National Railcards can bring you great savings if you're taking the train. Depending on your age and your situation, you are able to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to save money for your Edinburgh Milton Keynes train ticket.

When purchasing a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Edinburgh to Milton Keynes? Grab your calculator, considering:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average cost for a Edinburgh Milton Keynes ticket (i.e.: £62.71)(1)

Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. You will see the approximate number of trips needed across the year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£62.71 = 1.4. Your railcard will be worth the investment once you will have done on average 2 trips from Edinburgh to Milton Keynes (one way journey).

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most train fares.
