  • In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can estimate the number of journeys you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make about 2 trips from Chelmsford to Colchester (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.
