Railcards can enable you to make great savings for your Birmingham Scarborough train ticket.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Birmingham to Scarborough? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average fare for a Birmingham Scarborough ticket (i.e.: £100.77)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.
