Rail Travel Vouchers extended in UK
Thousands of Rail Travel Vouchers that have expiry dates between 20th Oct 2020 and 30th June 2021 will have their original expiry date extended by 6 months.
Many passengers were unable to use the vouchers due to the 2nd and 3rd COVID lockdowns.
As lockdown restrictions ease, many businesses have reopened and overnight stays permitted and passengers may now wish to use their vouchers.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “This extension ensures that passengers with travel vouchers are not penalised for following government advice.
“By offering people more time to redeem their vouchers, we are ensuring that passengers will not be left out of pocket as they come back to the railways.” ■
