Railcards can enable you to save money for your Edinburgh Milton Keynes train ticket.

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average price for a Edinburgh Milton Keynes ticket (i.e.: £57.50)(1)

The first step is to divide 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 across the year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£57.50 = 1.53. Your railcard will be worthwile after at least 2 trips from Edinburgh to Milton Keynes (one way journey).
