    Is there any suggestion that the validity of Railcards will be extended to allow for the period of non-use?

    Not at the moment.

    If something is done then it's more likely that new railcards sold for a year will have 15 months validity rather than 12. This is what happened after the severe disruption in 2000 following the Hatield derailment.

    On a related note our Two Together railcard expires soon and I can't see immediate renewal when we're not going to be using it as being the best use of our finances.

    Is there a set length of time that it has to be renewed within?

    No need to renew. Just buy a new one when you make your next journey.
