National Railcards can offer great value for money if you're travelling by train.

What are the benefits of a railcard?

When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Colchester to Leicester? Use your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average cost for a Colchester Leicester ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(1)

The first step is to divide A by B: this will give 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 journeys needed across the year to be profitable.

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 Colchester to Leicester (one way trip).

How much do I need to pay for a railcard?

The cost to purchase a Disabled persons railcard is £20 while it will cost you £30 to get a 16-25, Two together, Family and Friends or the Senior railcard. All of them enable you to get a third off most train fares for a whole year.
