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 Oxford to Edinburgh? Grab your calculator, taking into account:

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.
