Looking to travel for cheap? Many railcards and discounts are available to pay less for your Edinburgh Oxford train ticket and make even more savings on your tickets: special train fares for children, railcards for all ages, group travel, or charity discount. There are many types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

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

    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 Oxford ticket (i.e.: £101.31)(1)

    The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. It will give you the minimum number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

    In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£101.31 = 0.87. Your railcard will be worthwile if you're doing around 1 trips from Edinburgh to Oxford (one way journey).

  • All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard that costs £20. Railcards enable you to get 34% off most adult fares, hence you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
