I have two quick questions about the four single East Coast rewards tickets that I obtained when I redeemed my points back in March: 1) My account states "Points used for Rewards Leisure First Class Single Ticket - Expires on 01/09/2015". I want to use them for a journey in late October. Provided the journey is booked before 1st September, will I be ok to use them for a journey after this date? The VTEC call centre staff said yes, but I didn't get the impression they understood my query! 2) Are rewards tickets likely to be available for journeys during the October half term week? I know that Easter and bank holidays are often excluded, but couldn't see any published restrictions for October. I'm hoping to get weekday FC seats on the London to Inverness direct service, which probably doesn't help with availability.
