Why should I buy a railcard?
When getting a railcard, the idea is to make savings after several journeys. But is it really relevant when travelling from Reading to Exeter? Grab your calculator, considering:

B = average discount offered by the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average fare for a Reading Exeter ticket (i.e.: £48.37)(1)
Start by dividing A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be worthwile. Then divide that number by C. You will see the average number of journeys needed per year to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£48.37 = 1.82. Your railcard will be worth the investment after on average 2 trips from Reading to Exeter (one way trip).
