How much can I save with a railcard?
When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Reading to Leicester? Check with your calculator, considering:
A = the cost of the railcard (i.e.: £30)
B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for a Reading Leicester ticket (i.e.: £45.07)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will give you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of journeys needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to be profitable.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£45.07 = 1.95. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 2 trips from Reading to Leicester (one way trip).
