National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age as well as your situation, you are able to get one of the 5 different railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can enable you to pay less for your Edinburgh Perth train ticket.

  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can estimate the number of journeys you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    For your assessment, you have to include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, your savings on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average price of a Edinburgh Perth ticket is £12.28 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £12.28: £88/£12.28 = 7.16. You will need to make about 8 trips from Perth to Edinburgh (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.
