Here's some questions and answers for some things you might like to know before you travel
If you're on board one of our trains and the train is delayed or cancelled, please listen to the on-board announcements for advice.

If you arrive 15 minutes or more late at your destination because of a delay or cancellation to a Southeastern service, you can claim Delay Repay.
The heating is disabled from the start of service until 8pm. We know this might not be helpful when the weather is much colder than normal, but we trust you’ll notice the benefit of this decision once the weather warms up.
You can charge your devices only on our high speed trains. There are plug sockets under the seat, with additional USB ports.
If you see a plug socket on any other train, please do not use them.
Smoking is banned from all areas of our stations and trains, this includes the full length of platforms and the entrances to our stations.
‘No smoking’ posters and signs are in place warning passengers about this.
Electronic cigarette devices cannot be used on our trains or at our stations.
If your bike is in a wheelchair space, you must remove it if a passenger using a wheelchair needs it.
Due to safety concerns over a potential fire risk from batteries on both e-scooters and e-skateboards, we are going to be restricting their use on our network.
From Thursday 1 June, we are asking colleagues and our customers not to bring e-scooters and/or e-skateboards onto our stations or trains.
Regular scooters will still be allowed as long as they don’t have a fixed or removable battery power source.
The policy change will be in line with many other Train Operating Companies, as well as Transport for London.
For more information visit our e-scooters page.
The luggage racks above seats are suitable for suitcases and bags which would normally fit into a plane’s overhead compartment – see luggage dimensions here.
Some services have specific space for larger suitcases, please call customer services on 0345 322 7021 for more information.
