Cheap train tickets from Edinburgh to Birmingham International

Long journeys such as this one can be quite expensive so we want to make sure you know some ways to save on your travel.

  • By planning ahead and booking in advance you can pick and choose the best time to travel. Tickets go on sale around 12 weeks before the travel date so the earlier you book, the cheaper you can travel. If you set up a ticket alert we’ll email you when the tickets become available.
  • Don’t forget to use your Railcard. Railcards can save you up to a third off your travel if you travel off-peak so for more expensive journeys like this one, you could save quite a bit. An annual fee of £30 is definitely worth it if you travel across the UK a few times a year.
  • We don’t charge any fees, so by booking direct, you can save a bit extra. We also have a price promise: If you find the same ticket cheaper elsewhere, we’ll refund you the difference.
