Seriously? You can’t apply for refunds online? That’s a cynical way of reducing the number of late train payouts.

On Sunday 21st February 2016, booked onto the 18:29 from Manchester Airport to Preston for a connection to Barrow booked via the TPE website, due to arrive in Barrow at 21:28, thanks to points failure outside Oxford Road station, Manchester didn’t drive into Preston until 20.50 with the next train to Barrow arriving at 21:50 – Finally arrived at 23:07 … Walked through the door at 23:30.

Have just checked the TransPennine Express website to see that in order to claim a refund, one has to print and complete a form … Is this a wind up? In this day of Digitally connected devices, you can not process refunds automatically?

Someone really is having a laugh, and not a funny one.

    Hello John
    Thank you for your comment, you have highlighted the concern for many and that is exactly why we are developing an application to try to make claiming for refunds and compensation as easy and as automated as possible. We are independent of all train operating companies, we do not issue the refunds, but we are hoping that soon you will be able to enter you details into the app and the rest will be automated.

Bought to Bristol airport from transpennine express to travel 9 & 13 December. Trip was from Barnstaple. Travelled to Exeter to find Bristol train cancelled and couldn’t get to airport in time for flight. So had to abandon holiday. How do I get a refund? Gary

    if you go to this web page there are options to contact TransPennine direct:

    There is also a live chat there where you maybe able to get quick answers to your question. As for getting compensation because you missed the flight, that may be a bit tricky. If you brought your tickets with a credit card there maybe a level of insurance you could claim back on. Good luck
