One thing that will help, is to keep the lid of the toilet down as the water in the bowl can evaporate into the air and cause rust.

Cheap (or even, sometimes, expensive but poor quality) rads can be a factor. I fitted a fancy looking "designer-style" rad in our bathroom a little over a year ago and it's showing bubbles of rust on one corner already. It was only cheap, about 80 quid or so -- less than half the price of the other ones the Mrs was looking at, but this one had a higher output which we really needed. Although it looked nice initially, it's crap quality, there are a couple of reviews on the site we bought it from people with similar issues. The rad it replaced (similar size, but just a traditional single panel), had been there for at least 18 years and showed no signs of external rust.
