    Can I use RTVs to pay for...

    1. A Northern Day ticket (NB: using a family and friends voucher my friend who works for Northern has given me that are issued to staff)?
    2. a Sailrail ticket to Douglas IOM?

    I am 100% certain I shall be buying the above 2 things. Now for these last 2, I will get them if I am able to use RTVs.

    3. Rail & Sail to Continental Europe (Calais and Dutch Flyer)? and/or Eurostar through ticketing?

    4. Through ticketing for Preserved Railways?

    Finally, out of interest:

    5. to renew a Disabled Persons Railcard by post (i.e. they'd have to be enclosed with the renewal form).

    If you can pay for <name of product> at an ATOC ticket office then yes, you can use RTVs to pay for it.

    I'm not sure what the deal is with using them via post.

    I was refused when attempting to pay for a Railcard using a voucher at Luton Airport Parkway station. The clerk had a good read of the small print on the back of the voucher and concluded that it could only be used for purchasing tickets.

    That should not have happened.
