National Railcards can save you a lot if you're using the train. Depending on your age and your situation, you are able to get one of the five existing railcards: Disabled persons, 16-25, Two together, Senior or Family and Friends railcards. Railcards can help you pay less for your Cardiff Southampton train ticket.
When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several trips. But is it really profitable when taking the train from Cardiff to Southampton? Use your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average cost for a Cardiff Southampton ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of trips needed across the year to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 2 trips from Cardiff to Southampton (one way journey).
The price to buy a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to have the 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to save 34% off most adult fares for an entire year.
