Enhanced Compensation

What am I entitled to?

If your Southern train is delayed by 15 minutes or more for journeys after 11 December 2016 or 30 minutes or more for journeys before 11 December 2016 we’ll compensate you under our Delay Repay scheme. Find out more or claim here.

We also offer ‘enhanced compensation’ to Season ticket holders under certain circumstances. Enhanced compensation may be payable in addition, if in a business reporting period you experience delays to your journey of 30 minutes or longer on 12 days. 

Your compensation will be either 2 day return journeys anywhere on the Southern route (valid for 12 months from the date of issue) or rail travel vouchers to the value of a single journey between the stations for which your Season ticket is valid. You can choose which option you would prefer.

To claim, please download the application form using the link below. In all cases we will need copies of your photocard and the Season ticket(s) that cover the journeys you are claiming for. Please note that if you hold a season ticket on a key card then you should supply your key card number instead of a copy of your ticket when submitting your enhanced compensation claim form. If you are an Oyster Season ticket holder you must accompany your claim with a receipt showing the date of purchase, the price you paid and the zones covered by your Oyster card. You then need to send these with your completed Enhanced Compensation application form.
