What are the benefits of a railcard?

To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to estimate the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £50.00: £88/£50.00 = 1.76. You will need to make on average 2 trips from Bristol to Swansea (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.
