Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Middlesbrough to Manchester? Check with your calculator, considering:

A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)

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

Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.

In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Middlesbrough to Manchester (one way trip).
