I think it's about a week.

Have you sent off for the ones that can only be used in May or can you use them any time??

:D

It depends when you've stated that you wanted to visit. As far as i'm aware they send them out first to people requesting the soonest dates. I think they said that they aim to get them sent out within 28 days though. Or am i just imagining that?

a lad i know did it and hes been waiting about 3 weeks now, i believe it was first come first sent so i'd be a little doubtful now - but i didnt read the whole thing so may be wrong.

I did notice however they had a closing date for the tickets which was the date the very last token was printed, which if people started late means its been a waste of money for them - bit naughty i thought.

Likewise, I got mine about 2 weeks ago, and they are for use this Thursday.

Can't use them though :roll:

Moved to trip planning and reports :D

I doubt we'll ever find out, but it'd be interesting to know just what percentage of these tickets are actually used! The tickets sounded like a fantastic deal on the face of things, but the conditions applied to them and the application process cause more difficulty than it's worth!

Plus you can only pick a timeframe, then they pick you an exact date, so probably most of us who sent for them, can't go

It's rediculous giving you a set day, mine are useless (26th June) we picked the summer holidays and sent them the first day you could. There a waste of time and should have been able to use them in the time brackets you picked not a random day of their choosing. Total con! :evil:

Same boat as me, I think my application has failed.

I agree.

They would have known before they put them in the newspaper that most people who send off for them will not get the day of their choice, and therefore not be able to use them.

I sent mine in on the day that the offer ended and wasn't hopeful that I'd get anywhere at all but I did and managed to bag Friday 5th Sep which is pretty good timing!
