Discount Edinburgh - Wakefield train tickets

The best way to spend less on your Edinburgh Wakefield train ticket must be to have a railcard. While regional railcards exist in some areas, National railcards enable you to make savings on most rail fares across the United Kingdom. Everyone is eligible to at least one of the 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.

To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to calculate how many trips you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

For your calculation, you must include the railcard cost, for instance £30, the discount on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a Edinburgh Wakefield ticket is £50.00 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. It will take you on average 2 trips from Wakefield to Edinburgh (one way journey) with your railcard to start saving money.

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