Why should I buy a railcard?
When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from London to Cambridge? Grab your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a London Cambridge ticket (i.e.: £18.20)(1)
Start by dividing 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 per year to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£18.20 = 4.84. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 5 trips from London to Cambridge (one way trip).
How much does a railcard cost?
