Most of these railcards are bought in order to receive better discounts. But is it really worth it for travelling from Birmingham to London? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for an Birmingham London return ticket (i.e.: £7.85)(1)
First, divide A by B and multiply by 100: this will give you the budget from which the card will be amortized. Then divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips that you will do to cushion the railcard.
In our example, A x B = 30/34 x 100 = £88.00. Then, 88/7.85342 = 11.21. It takes at least 11.21 trips from Birmingham to London round trip (or 12-ways) for the purchase of the railcard to be worthwhile!
