Compensation – get it with our Delay Repay scheme.
Get compensation from 15 minutes onwards.
We’ve improved our Delay Repay scheme.
If you hold a valid ticket for your journey, you can now claim compensation for delays of 15 minutes or more, no matter what the reason.
Delays are calculated against the planned, advertised timetable so compensation is not usually offered during periods of pre-planned engineering works and when replacement bus services are used.
We hope you never have to claim, but if things do go wrong, see our table below to see how much you could be entitled to.
Claim up to 100% money back on your ticket
We hope you never have to consult this table. But if you do, see how much you could claim:
|Length of delay||Compensation|
|15 to 29 minutes||25% of the cost of your single ticket or 12.5% of the cost of your return ticket|
|30 to 59 minutes||50% of the cost of your one-way ticket or 25% of the cost of your return ticket|
|60 to 119 minutes||100% of the cost of your one-way ticket or 50% of the cost of your return ticket|
|120 minutes or longer||100% of the cost of your ticket whether single or return|
We will use the proportionate cost of the price of the Season Ticket (i.e. 1/10th of a Weekly ticket, 1/40th of a Monthly ticket and 1/464th of an Annual ticket).
- Alternatively pick up a claim form at staffed stations/from staff on trains
- Or print off a PDF version of the Delay Repay form
Post the completed form to us at: Freepost GREATER ANGLIA CUSTOMER RELATIONS
Note this is the full address. It has been shortened for your ease, but rest assured that it will reach us.
- If you have a mobile ticket, please obtain a Delay Repay form from any staffed station or from our website and be sure to include your ticket reference number for us to verify your ticket purchase
- You must make your claim within 28 days of the delay
- We’ll not normally accept a claim if you were told in advance of your journey that there would be a delay
If you have a season ticket you can create a delay repay account, which means you don't have to fill out the Delay Repay claim form for each claim. Creating an account makes it:
- Easier to make delay repay claims.
- It's much quicker
- Your personal details will always be prefilled.
- Season ticket holders can save their ticket and skip having to add each time.
- Save your preferred compensation method.
- All your Delay Repay claims in one place.
