Discount Edinburgh - Sunderland train tickets

The easiest way to spend less on your Edinburgh Sunderland train ticket is probably to buy a railcard. While regional railcards are available 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 discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

The main benefit of using a railcard is that it only takes a couple of trips to be profitable.

You will need to purchase at least £88 of train tickets throughout the duration of the railcard's validity for the card to break-even. This number corresponds to the cost of the railcard, £30, divided by the discount, 34%. On every ticket that you buy afterwards, you will save money.

As an example, train tickets from Edinburgh to Sunderland cost on average £29.07 (1). If you're dividing £88 by £29.07 (£88/£29.07 = 3.03), it turns out that after only 4 one way journeys from Sunderland to Edinburgh, the railcard will have paid for itself.

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