http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/travel/2017/01/credit-card-company-decision-to-refund-southern-passenger-could-open-floodgates-for-delay-claims

"Long-suffering Southern Rail season ticket holders may be able to claw back £1,000s if other credit card companies follow the example set by American Express in refunding a passenger who'd been plagued by delays.

Annual season ticket holder 'Sean', who asked not to give his real name, told MoneySavingExpert.com he'd used our "handy guide" to take advantage of protection offered in Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act and get a £2,400 refund from his credit card provider on the cost of his Southern season ticket.

Section 75 rules mean that credit card companies are jointly liable along with retailers for making sure that customers receive the goods or services they paid for. As a result, Sean's credit card firm American Express (Amex) agreed to issue him with a partial refund of his ticket based on the regular delays he'd suffered."

Interesting, but both my husband and daughter claim back from the rail company ( delay repay scheme) when the trains are late here, then you get s cheque back for each delay . They have never had a claim rejected. Seems a bit of a risk to wait say six months and try to claim via your credit card instead. Assume he didn't bother putting in any claims and then just got really fed up one day and tried his credit card company instead.

To be fair, if we had delays on 50% of our trains here, I might be looking for more drastic solutions too ;)

Abellio only ran a weekend service in 2016 54% of the time and paid zero compensation as they put a replacement bus service in! Does anyone know if you could claim back for non service as well as delays?

Don't look for another solution.
Do this!! The credit card company will ultimately take the money from the train companies

IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DID THIS THE TRAIN COMPANIES WOULD LOSE SOO MUCH MONEY SOMETHING WOULD HAVE TO BE DONE.

Power of solidarity! :{
