Have any Gold Members received an application form with a demand for £15? For the past 3 or 4 years it has been free as part of our membership. In addition, being a member of the Away Scheme, means that one is a member of the TC. Has someone slipped up, or, is this another rip-off? I am in the process of getting the info from the club, so, we'll see.

Just spoke to a lovely lady at the club. The forms were sent out in error, so, if you are a gold and receive this form, bin it.

I'm a gold and travel club member (from when I was a red member, all my away points are on that and not my ST). Still no letter.

You should get them transferred to your Gold. If we ever get to a semi, or, a final ( :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: :biglol: ) it may be vital.

Total disaster! Don't pay or complete form, if you are a Gold or Plat.

Same as, but I have near always had to chase up these beggars as far back as I can remember.
Last season the new cards had no expiry dates on, or the ugly mug shots to save cash!

I would think that they have been working overtime on season ticket renewals / non take ups.

Yeah, Travel Club closed a few seasons ago. The cynic in me thinks that's why they are so lax with renewals so they can wind it up and just use Gold/Silver/Red memberships.

I ended up renewing online. Something the form doesn't state either. I emailed the club after I posted on here and they told me to call the regular travel number, they then put me through to a different number and left me on hold. The pre-recorded message said something about all memberships are renewable online so I gave it ago. Logged in today and it's all up to date. My precious away points down to 18. :(

Good girl....This way we can keep close tabs on those retrobates in the Ivory Tower who wish to decimate the Travel Club Society when renewals are due!... :thumbs:
