Refunds & changing tickets

Off-Peak, Anytime or Season Tickets

  • If you have an Off-Peak or Anytime/Anytime Advance ticket and you apply for a refund on an unused ticket, an admin fee of £10 may apply.
  • Unexpired Season Tickets can be refunded at any time and train companies calculate how much is refunded by how much value is left on your ticket. They do this by deducting the value of any other tickets you could have travelled with in the same time until you stopped using your Season Ticket. This refund can be backdated  with evidence that illness prevented you from travelling. (National Rail Conditions of Travel, 40.4).
  • To see how much you could get back from your Season Ticket, you can use the handy calculation tool here to work out the value of your refund. (Please note, this is designed for National Rail Season Ticket calculations - West Midlands Local Authority Season Tickets (such as nTrain or nNetwork) have their own independent calculation method)
  • People can apply for ticket refunds up to 4 weeks from the last day that the ticket was valid.
  • In areas where there is disruption, we and other operators will agree cross-ticket acceptance on a case by case basis.

We currently estimate the completion of applications 28 days after submission, please be aware this may take longer if we need to contact you for further information regarding your application.
