Money back if your train is delayed by 15 minutes or more

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 compensation. Delay Repay is a national scheme train companies use to compensate passengers for delays or cancellations.

Claims can be made up to 28 days after your journey.

Apply Online


The amount of compensation paid is based on the cost of your ticket and the length of your delay. 

The table below shows the amount of compensation available for each ticket type:

For Weekly and longer Season Tickets

As Season Tickets are valid for a period of time, we’ll compensate you up to a maximum of the return journey rate for a Season Ticket. We calculate the journey value as: 

Season Ticket type  Journey rate
Annual

Price/464

Quartely Price/120
Monthly Price/40
Weekly Price/10

 

Length of delay Ticket type
 Season
15 to 29 minutes 25% of journey rate

If you’re claiming Delay Repay compensation online, it’s really easy. Once you’ve registered, our system will remember your information, so if you do claim again, it’s much quicker.

If you requested your compensation to be paid back to your bank account, this should be with you the day after your claim has been approved. But please allow up to 48 hours.

If you requested your compensation via PayPal this should be with you within one hour of your claim being approved. But please allow up to 48 hours.

You can also make a claim by post - just download a Delay Repay claim form

You have up to 28 days of your delay to make a claim.

For us to process your claim, you’ll need to provide your journey details and either:

  • Your original daily or weekly ticket
  • A journey statement/receipt if you’re an Oyster or contactless user
  • Your Season Ticket number and photocard number if you have a monthly or longer Season Ticket
  • Or your Key card number

 

When your train is delayed by 15 minutes or more. A delayed train is usually when your train service is running behind the planned, advertised timetable. If we’ve needed to introduce an emergency timetable, we’ll base your compensation on that.

If we introduce a temporary timetable (due to, for example, poor weather) our Delay Repay guarantee will be based on that temporary timetable.

For engineering work, online journey planners are updated twelve weeks in advance, and you should make sure that you check your journey around that time. Delay Repay will apply to the engineering work timetable.

This will depend on the payment method you choose:

  • Electronic bank transfer - Your payment should be with you the next working day after your claim has been approved. But please allow up to 48 hours.

  • Visa – Your payment should be with you within 3 to 10 working days, all depending on your bank.
  • Cheque - This will be sent out to you in the post within 14 days of your claim being approved.

  • Electronic bank transfer – Simply provide your sort code and account number. Your payment should be with you the next working day after your claim has been approved. But please allow up to 48 hours.

  • Cashable vouchers – these can be exchanged for cash at any Southeastern ticket office within 28 days, or they can be used to buy rail tickets with most train operating companies in Great Britain (including season tickets) for up to 12 months of being issued. We can pay out compensation up to £50 in National Rail vouchers. Any amount above this will be paid by cheque. Please note that you’ll need to bring photo ID with you to redeem vouchers for cash.
  • Visa – Simply provide your long card number and expiry date.
  • Cheque – You can opt to be paid by cheque if you claim by post.

Please note - we can't process Delay Repay payments to American Express or Mastercard.

When we process compensation via faster payments (using sort code and account details) or PayPal, we’ll use the details you have submitted when making your claim. If your faster payments or PayPal payment is rejected, we’ll be notified by the bank or PayPal, but this notification can take up to 28 days. When this happens, a cheque will automatically be sent out to you, and this should arrive within 4 weeks.

Southeastern’s Enhanced Compensation scheme provides additional compensation for season ticket holders when a significant proportion of their journeys in a business period have been delayed longer than 30 minutes.

This compensation is in addition to the compensation all passengers are entitled to under the Delay Repay Scheme. Check our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
