VA Companion reward voucher.

I'm so sorry for sounding thick but it this possible...

I have a VA Companion Reward Voucher on my FC account.

Can I book one UC Z fare paid with cash and then use my companion reward voucher for the second seat and pay just the taxes on the second seat?

I am a red FC member so would i need to pay 57.5k miles for the companion seat plus the taxes?

I have spoken to a VA agent who tell me this is not possible and that I have to pay for the first seat with miles and not cash if I want to use the voucher and would indeed have to pay the 57.5k miles plus taxes for the second seat.

It's just that I found this on the Points Guy website:

Whatís even better is that you can apply your Companion or Upgrade Vouchers on a cash fare, rather than just redemption fare. This means if youíve earned a Companion or Upgrade Voucher but donít have enough Flying Club miles for the first passenger to make a redemption, the first passenger can just book a cash fare. The first passenger can then apply the Companion Voucher for their companion or the Upgrade Voucher for themselves.

Me confused!

Thanks.

Ali.

This page appears to agree - to find it go to the page then click on companion seats and it's at the bottom of the table

Got through to the right agent, third time lucky!

I booked one full cash fare, one companion fare (57.5k miles plus taxes) and one M&M seat...

So thatís us all booked for next year, something to look forward to, all 3 can be rescheduled (twice I think) should the need arise providing we travel by the end of Dec 2022.

Really appreciate your help

Sorted, as soon as I find out if Xmas is going ahead I'm going to book for next year.
