Discount Sheffield - Edinburgh train tickets

The easiest way to pay less on your Sheffield Edinburgh 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 residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to evaluate 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 Sheffield Edinburgh ticket is £43.68 (1).

Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £43.68: £88/£43.68 = 2.01. It will take you on average 3 trips from Edinburgh to Sheffield (one way journey) with your railcard to start saving money.

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