What are the benefits of a railcard?

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Manchester to Bangor? 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 Manchester Bangor ticket (i.e.: £42.70)(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/£42.70 = 2.06. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 3 trips from Manchester to Bangor (one way journey).
