Two Together Rail Card

My husband and I will be using trains throughout a trip to England, Scotland, and Wales. We want to take advantage of advanced purchase prices as well as the discount from the Two Together Rail Card. The description of the Two Together online purchase says the card will be mailed to the buyer's address, but I want to make sure that includes purchases outside of Great Britain. I used the enquiry system at National Rail but have not gotten a response. Has anyone had experience buying the Two Together card from the US? Thanks for your help.

No it can only be posted to UK addresses.

You can buy your Advance type tickets before you have the Two Together card, but you must obtain one from a station prior to travelling. Don't forget to take the photos, or get them done at a booth. The requirements are similar to those of a passport (neutral background, nothing obscuring face etc).

They are easy to get on arrival, just present the photos of each of you and the £30 and hand it through the window, and the member of staff will hand back the Railcard.

You can buy your tickets as if you had the railcard but you need to be sure that you have it prior to boarding the first train for which you have claimed the discount.

Any staffed ticket office (not in peak hours in the direction of travel, please - the commuters won't like it) can help you.
