Cheap train tickets from Edinburgh to Carlisle

When travelling from Edinburgh to Carlisle there are a few tips that can save you money on your journey:

  • The first one is to simply book in advance. Did you know that tickets go on sale around 12 weeks before the travel date? The earlier you book, the cheaper you travel. If needed, you can set up a ticket alert and we’ll email you when the tickets are available to book.
  • Use your railcard. Railcards can save you up to a third on your travel, even more for some age groups. So it’s worth signing up for one if you travel a few times or more in a year.
  • Finally, you should try to book direct. Here at Avanti West Coast, we don’t charge booking fees, so you can save an extra bit of money by coming directly to us. Our price promise also means that if you see a cheaper price for the same train journey, we’ll refund you the difference.
