Discount Shrewsbury - Edinburgh train tickets

The most efficient way to spend less on your Shrewsbury Edinburgh train ticket may be to get a railcard. While regional railcards can be obtained in some areas, National railcards enable you to save money on most rail fares across the country. Everyone is eligible to at least 1 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 assess the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

    For your calculation, you must include the cost of your railcard, i.e £30, the discount on each journey (i.e.: 34%) as well as the cost of your ticket. The average cost of a Shrewsbury Edinburgh ticket is £50.00 (1).

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make on average 2 trips from Edinburgh to Shrewsbury (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.
