Membership Renewal

Thank you for choosing to renew your membership of Railfuture.

Your support is appreciated to help Railfuture with its campaigns to promote Britain's railway for passengers and freight.

If you (or your organisation) are not currently a member/supporter and wish to become one, please click Join Now. If you wish to update your consents to receive communicationss please click the 'Self-Care' option on the Member Services page.

After choosing the type and length of membership wanted, this page will take you to the PayPal page where you can safely make your payment either using an existing PayPal account or your credit/debit card. If you have a non-UK credit/debit card there may be issues with PayPal depending on the country in which it is registered (e.g. Germany) because additional information is required. Please e-mail 'treasurer' at in this case.

If you wish to renew by UK cheque then please send a cheque for the amount as shown below (adding a donation if you wish) and send it to: Railfuture Renewals, 24 Chedworth Place, Tattingstone, Suffolk IP9 2ND.

Payment Online - Choose type and duration of renewal

Please choose one of the options below. This does not have to be the same type of membership as you currently have. For example, if you have just reached age 65 you may switch from 'Full Membership' to 'Pensioner'. When an 'Under 16' supporter reaches 16 they can upgrade to a 'Student' membership.

Because we have kept tight control of our costs (having made more use of e-mail and introduced electronic communication) we are currently offering a £3 discount on the full membership rate for individuals. This is intended to help members who are on a low income, but any full member can, if they wish, pay the discounted amount. It is hoped that those who can pay the full rate will do so.

You may also upgrade from being a 'supporter' to becoming a member, which will entitle you to receive the annual accounts, vote in elections and hold office. However, please note that all applications to become a member need to be approved by the Railfuture board of directors, and in the unlikely event that your application is not accepted then your account will be credited.

About Railfuture

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.

Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.

Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.

Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.

A not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee.

Registered in England and Wales No. 05011634.

Registered Office: Edinburgh House, 1-5 Bellevue Road, Clevedon, North Somerset BS21 7NP (for legal correspondence only).
