Everyone is eligible to at least 1 of the 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.

When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several trips. But is it really relevant when taking the train from Plymouth to Swansea? 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.

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 Plymouth to Swansea (one way journey).
