Why should I buy a railcard?
When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several trips. But is it really worth it when taking the train from Southampton to London? Check with your calculator, taking into account:
A = the railcard cost (i.e.: £30)
B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)
C = average price for a Southampton London ticket (i.e.: £23.70)(1)
Initially, divide A by B: this will show you the budget from which the card will be profitable. Now divide that number by C. The result is the minimum number of trips needed throughout the duration of the railcard's validity to start saving money.
In our example, A/B = £30/34% = £88.00. Then, 88/£23.70 = 3.71. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 4 trips from Southampton to London (one way journey).
What is the cost of a railcard?
