If you're considering claiming a refund on your season ticket, please be aware that we are no longer able to back date season ticket refunds and refunds will revert to our usual terms and conditions. Please see paragraph 40 of the National Rail Conditions of travel for more information.

We aim to respond within 10 working days for refund enquiries. The average duration for a refund to be processed is 9 days.


For information on refunds, please visit the refund information page. If you wish to apply for a refund, please use the web form below.

Compensation for delays

If you are delayed on a Chiltern Railways journey and the cause of the delay was within the control of the railway industry you can claim compensation. Chiltern Railways offers passengers the right to claim for delays using our own delay compensation scheme. Click here for further information on Delay Compensation.

You do not have to claim using this scheme, but if you do you must make a claim within 28 days of the relevant journey. You may also be entitled to claim for other losses caused by Chiltern Railways and further guidance is available in the National Conditions of Travel and in our Passenger Charter.

If the initial cause of your delay occurred while travelling with another train company, your claim should be submitted directly to that train operator. Please visit their website for more information.

To make a claim simply fill out the form at the bottom of this page and attach a photo of your ticket, cut in half diagonally. (See the example below).

If you are travelling on a single or return ticket, please do not put it through the ticket barrier at the end of your journey as you will need to submit it to make a claim.

For more information on compensation click here.

If you currently hold a Season Ticket then please attach a photo but there is no need to cut your ticket, only if you are applying for delay compensation, not refunds. For instructions on refunds, see the information at the top of the page.
