Am I missing something or is it really the case that I have to set a departure time in order to set and off-peak charging time? Would that my life was as organised as that!

It doesn't have to be your actual departure time, a nominal one will do, say 09:00, unless you want the air conditioning to run before you leave, in which case it does.

I think getting up at 0030 every day to start charging is not really a great idea. Especially as I'd have to get up at 0430 to stop it again! :)

The car certainly does have the ability to set charging only when you have the cheap electricity - it sounds like you use Octopus go like me. However I did have an occasion when for some reason the car failed to charge as expected. Currently I find it works better using the scheduled charging feature in my Podpoint home charging point. That has only failed to charge on one occasion and worked successfully every other time.
