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:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a Oxford Edinburgh ticket (i.e.: £50.00)(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/£50.00 = 1.76. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Oxford to Edinburgh (one way journey).
How much do I need to pay for a railcard?
