Anytime, Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak tickets
You can claim a refund if you didn’t travel.
These tickets are non-refundable unless you didn’t travel because your train was delayed or cancelled.

We calculate any refund from the day the ticket is returned to us. We work out what is due based on the difference between the price you paid and the cost of a ticket for the time held.

Flexi Season tickets
Refunds must be applied for before the end of the ticket’s 28-day validity.
A refund is calculated by deducting the cost of an Anytime Day Return for the same journey, for each day’s travel activated, from the cost of the Flexi Season.
