My 16-25 Railcard is due to expire and I was wondering if it is possible to renew again before the card expires and take the discounts beyond my 26th birthday?

    From the FAQ's on the 16-25 Railcard website;
    11. What happens if I have my 26th birthday before my Railcard runs out?

    You can buy or renew your 16-25 Railcard up to and including the day before your 26th birthday and keep using it until its expiry date. So, even if you turn 26 while your Railcard is valid, you can still make huge savings.
    So yes, buy it now whilst your still 25 and use it until it expires.

    Edit: the above is for a 1 year railcard, for a 3 year railcard;
    4. What happens if I have my 26th birthday before my Railcard runs out?

    You can buy or renew your 1-year 16-25 Railcard up to and including the day before your 26th birthday, and your 3-year Railcard up until the day before your 24th birthday - and keep using it until its expiry date
