Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK residents.

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Bedford to Cardiff? Check with your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for a Bedford Cardiff ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Bedford to Cardiff (one way trip).
