    Southern Advance : How to Rebook?

    Via Eastbourne with Southern, Advance ticket, purchased through Southern website. What is odd is there is no way to change the ticket even though the site suggests you do that using the Manage/Refund option. Obviously Southern don't want to be bothered with this and will reply in 2 weeks long...

    Southern Advance : How to Rebook?

    I have a couple of Advance tickets between London and Rye and hold little hope of successfully completing the journey next week. According to the Southern website : " If you have opted to collect an Advance purchase ticket via TOD, but have not yet collected it, you may change it to a...

    Twyford Tfl Rail Delay

    This is the response I got from Tfl. I had no idea signalling issues were not included in compensation payouts. "From 07:02, as you may be aware we had severe delays and train cancellations / suspensions on TfL Rail services due to signalling problems in the Slough area. The Slough area /...

    Twyford Tfl Rail Delay

    I was caught up in the exciting new timetable roll out at Twyford yesterday and ended up being 40 minutes late into Paddington. I aimed to catch a Tfl service that was cancelled along with the next 2 or 3. After considerable effort I found the delay compensation option on Tfl website but no...

    Ticket from/to Another Station at Unstaffed Station

    I would of assumed a station like Taplow would be an obvious one for the "other station" purchase option. It seems that there are rarely on train staff visible, trains are very often 8 or 12 carriages, I'm sure if I had travelled into Paddington I may have been punished more absolutely or, at...

    Ticket from/to Another Station at Unstaffed Station

    I understand. Thanks. I had never used Taplow before and I merely took up a friend of an offer of a lift to this station, there was no opportunity to purchase online. I have seen TVMs that allow tickets from other stations to be purchased, so that ability not being present would have made me...

    Ticket from/to Another Station at Unstaffed Station

    No penalty fare, I was just let through after being "told off" in that disinterested way which made me not quite believe the information I was given. I bought the ticket at Ealing Broadway. I didn't lose out in this situation but I feel I did not do anything wrong either.

    Ticket from/to Another Station at Unstaffed Station

    Yesterday I wanted to purchase a Day Return from Maidenhead to Ealing Broadway at Taplow, starting short and returning back to Maidenhead. The ticket office was closed and the machine did not offer an option to purchase tickets from another station. At Ealing Broadway I was told I should have...

    Virgin EC Delay Repay on "free" ticket

    I travelled on the heavily delayed VTEC 1600 Kings Cross to Aberdeen on Wednesday - arriving roughly three hours late into Aberdeen, due to signal failure outside York, fatality around Darlington and then issues with scheduling and staffing all the way up to Aberdeen. The relentless on-board...

    Hastings to London via Haywards Heath excessable?

    Thanks for all the replies. I cannot believe for one moment it was correct to sell me a one way Charing Cross to Hastings ticket thus rendering the return portion of my Super Off Peak worthless. With regards to the "Via Haywards Heath" to HS1 excess+upgrade, I was sure Southeastern's website...

    Hastings to London via Haywards Heath excessable?

    I recently purchased this day return but then realised that the last train from Victoria was subject to a bus replacement from Lewes. Deciding to travel back from Charing Cross I was told I had to purchase an Off Peak single by CHX ticket office. Can anyone confirm this? Additionally, there...

    Why do so many people want to avoid their fare?

    I'm pretty sure the amount of fare-dodging is similar to shoplifting or illegal downloading but I don't think I've ever seen thread on here asking how to trick the system. What I see is people who have been caught *possibly* tricking the system not realising how serious the situation they find...

    This mornings Northern Revenue Op - Liverpool Echo

    Absolutely. How can this company suggest customers use new technology when they cannot even be bothered to use proven older technology. What a joke.

    More nonsense from the incompetent GTR "Gatwick Express" staff.

    I hate that. Very infuriating. A favour for the person with the valid ticket...
