Delay Repay

Has a delayed Gatwick Express service made you late? You can claim Delay Repay compensation if you’re delayed by 15 minutes or more.

What is Delay Repay?

Delay Repay is a national scheme that train companies use to compensate you for unexpected delays and cancellations.

You’re entitled to compensation for any delay or cancellation that causes you to arrive 15 minutes or more behind schedule, except where delays have been caused by planned engineering works.

How to claim Delay Repay

You need to apply for compensation online or by post within 28 days of your delayed journey. We’ll respond to your claim within 20 working days.

What are you entitled to?

If you have a season ticket…

We’ll calculate your compensation by working out the value of each single journey your ticket covers:

  • an annual season ticket covers 464 single journeys
  • a six-monthly season ticket covers 240 single journeys
  • a quarterly season ticket covers 120 single journeys
  • a monthly season ticket covers 40 single journeys
  • a weekly season ticket covers 10 single journeys

So if you're delayed by:

  • 15-29 minutes you're entitled to 25% of the cost of a single journey
  • 30-59 minutes you're entitled to 50% of the cost of a single journey
  • 60-119 minutes you're entitled to 100% of the cost of a single journey
  • 120+ minutes you're entitled to 100% of the cost of a return journey

If your commute has been consistently delayed by over 30 minutes, you may be entitled to enhanced compensation.

If you have a day ticket…

You’re owed the following compensation if you’re delayed by:

  • 15-29 minutes you're entitled to at least 25% of the single fare paid. Or, if you bought a return ticket, at least 25% of the fare paid for the affected portion.
  • 30-59 minutes you're entitled to at least 50% of the single fare paid. Or, if you bought a return ticket, at least 50% of the fare paid for the affected portion.
  • 60-119 minutes you're entitled to 100% of the single fare paid. Or, if you bought a return ticket, at least 50% of the fare paid for the affected portion.
  • 120+ minutes you're entitled to 100% of the cost of the fare paid whether it was for a single or return journey.

How we'll compensate you

It’s your right to receive your compensation in the same way you paid for your ticket. The full range of repayment options available through the online claim form is:

  • Electronic bank transfer (BACS)
  • E-voucher (you must have an online account with us)
  • PayPal (you must have a PayPal account)
  • Credit or debit card
  • National Rail vouchers (cashable)
  • Cheque

The online form is the most secure way for us to receive your payment details. We can’t accept financial information by post, so the repayment options are more limited.

National Rail vouchers can be used as payment (or part payment) towards any National Rail ticket, including season tickets. You can also exchange National Rail vouchers for cash at any Gatwick Express, Great Northern, Southern or Thameslink ticket office, as long as they were issued by one of these four train companies.
