Consultation on improving access to delay compensation
Closing date: 28 Aug 2020
We have published our proposals to improve access to delay compensation through a new licence condition, code of practice and Third Party Intermediary code. These proposals seek to tackle some of the key barriers to delay compensation, including awareness and ease of process. We also set out a requirement for train companies to receive claims submitted via Third Party Intermediaries, provided that these TPIs comply with good practice standards.
