There are many different types of railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Two together railcard, Family and Friends Railcard, Senior railcard, Disabled persons railcard.

Most of these railcards are bought in order to receive better discounts. But is it really worth it for travelling from Liverpool to London? Check with your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30.00)

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average price for an Liverpool London return ticket (i.e.: £22.46)(1)

First, divide A by B and multiply by 100: this will give you the budget from which the card will be amortized. Then divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips that you will do to cushion the railcard.

In our example, A x B = 30/34 x 100 = £88.00. Then, 88/22.4571 = 3.92. It takes at least 3.92 trips from Liverpool to London round trip (or 4-ways) for the purchase of the railcard to be worthwhile!
