Why should I buy a railcard?
When buying a railcard, you want to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Dundee to Edinburgh? Use your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average cost for a Dundee Edinburgh ticket (i.e.: £10.01)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. You can now divide that number by C. The result is the average number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£10.01 = 8.8. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 9 trips from Dundee to Edinburgh (one way trip).
