What are the benefits of a railcard?
When buying a railcard, you aim to break even after several journeys. But is it really profitable when travelling from Oxford to Cardiff? Use your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average price cut with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average cost for a Oxford Cardiff ticket (i.e.: £34.14)(1)
The first step is to divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be efficient. You can now divide that number by C. It will give you the approximate number of journeys needed across the year to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£34.14 = 2.58. Your railcard will be profitable if you're doing around 3 trips from Oxford to Cardiff (one way trip).
