While regional railcards are available in some areas, National railcards enable you to spend less on most rail fares across the UK. Everyone is eligible to at least a certain railcard, even non-UK residents. National railcards available: 16-25 discount card, Senior railcard, Two together discount card, Family and Friends railcard and Disabled persons discount card.

In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can assess the number of journeys you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make about 2 trips from Reading to Nottingham (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.
