When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Bristol to Dover? Grab your calculator, considering:

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

Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£40.32 = 2.18. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 3 trips from Bristol to Dover (one way trip).
