    Good grief if all you’ve lost over the pandemic is 30 quid for a railcard, you should be thanking your lucky stars.
    You have no idea if that's all anyone has lost. Other companies are more keen to keep their customers onside. One has said the year long ticket to their museum has been extended because it was difficult to visit. The difference is that National Rail historically don't appear to care much about their customers.

    If people buy a service and do not use it.

    And other people buy the same service and do use it.

    Then it is not a Rip Off. It is personal choice.

    I agree, we've visited a couple of heritage site where you pay once and your ticket is valid for a year. One site has extended their tickets to last 15 months to acknowledge that we couldn't visit as often.
    Merlin annual passes have extended their passes, and I'm sure many others have too. 
    I do agree to some extent with Bouicca21, worse things are going on.
    But it is gaulng that the rail card companies don't seem to care that some of us haven't used our cards at all and won't refund not extend.
