If you want to understand how much you can save with a railcard, you have to evaluate how many trips you need to save money. You will see that most of the time, only a few trips are needed.
For your evaluation, you need to include the railcard cost, for instance £30, how much you're saving on each trip (i.e.: 34%) and the cost of your ticket. The average fare of a Birmingham Bradford ticket is £74.43 (1).
Divide the railcard cost by the saving: £30/34%= £88. Now divide £88 by £74.43: £88/£74.43 = 1.18. It will take you approximately 2 trips from Bradford to Birmingham (one way journey) with your railcard to be profitable.
