What are the benefits of a railcard?

When purchasing a railcard, you want to save money after several journeys. But is it really worth it when travelling from Swindon to Manchester? Check with your calculator, considering:

B = average saving with the railcard (i.e.: 34%)

C = average price for a Swindon Manchester ticket (i.e.: £121.43)(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/£121.43 = 0.72. Your railcard will be worthwile once you will have done at least 1 trips from Swindon to Manchester (one way trip).
