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

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from London to Chester? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)

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

C = average fare for a London Chester ticket (i.e.: £44.23)(1)

Start by dividing A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of trips needed per year to start saving money.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£44.23 = 1.99. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from London to Chester (one way journey).

All railcards cost £30 except the Disabled persons railcard for which you will pay £20. Railcards give you 34% off most train fares, so you will save 1/3 on most rail fares.
