Tube Strike - full fare refunded on the tfl website (if your delay is more than 15 mins).

Found 3rd Feb 2014
Most Londoners will be aware that there are tube strikes planned from Tuesday night until Friday morning. If you can't work from home and will be struggling your way to work on busses and infrequent trains remember that you can get your full fare refunded on the tfl website (if your delay is more than 15 mins).

For me that's £5 each way of very slow, but free travel.

Info on the strike via the get deal button to help you plan your journey.

There are more stiles the week after next I think.

Also worth noting season ticket holders can also get the refund. This comes through at full fare, not the average daily fare of their season ticket.

Karanrucks - I would try anyway. Chances are they will still send you a refund voucher.

Plus the following week same period, stress at work as my local station will not be stopped at... 20 minute extra walk to work.

every year they increase the fair and still the service is pants. what londoners have to put up with shame !!!

Greedy underground staff, not as greedy as the bankers that they take to work and some of the underground managment. But not everyone in London earns big bucks. Its just a rip off.

Also while I'm on the subject, f****** oyster cards, practically being forced to use them. If you forget your oyster card on a single journey the fair cost is ridiculous, nearly better off getting a taxi.

service! misrable and rude ticket office staff.

Bob Crowe, the £148,000 per year, Council
house resident, boss of the tube drivers
union, has been on a 3 week all inclusive
South American cruise. Will he be back in
time to be inconvenienced by his own men?
The tube drivers are very well paid especially
as most of the more modern trains do not
need drivers at all like the Docklands Light
Railway. I feel sorry for all the lower paid
staff & users of the Underground who will
be so badly inconvenienced by this action.

This happens because too many people are mindless slaves to a broken system.. More and mor money is being taken by those who run the underground and worse services are being given.. Yet we all plod along like its normal...

Take a stand and demand change..

But majority just complain and sit back down..

Nhs,police force, council, he'll they still get away with charging tv licence... Ppl can't afford food but they better pay there TV Licence!! Or else!!

What a shambles... Let's all go get drunk right? That will solve everything....

this needs to be moved to misc as its not a deal

Good to know, voted hot.

ENGLISH

this needs to be moved to misc as its not a deal



+1.

Cold, this needs to be moved.

Already ticket prices are a joke for the service you get, filthy often old trains, they have since put newer trains on but not enough. you then crammed in like can of sardines having to smell quite often sweaty gross armpits or being risked at being pick pocketed and then you have the smelly so called tramps begging for money.

Then they have a cheek to keep having strikes. when already they get good pay!

Do agree people moan about it but dont want to do anything about it.

No idea why this is hot. Not a deal. "pay full price and maybe you'll get a refund if you're delayed." And people moan about cashback deals....

Interesting the TFL will run the Jubilee line pretty much as normal. Call me a cynic but we don't want to inconvience the bankers in Canary Wharf now do we :-)

Grow up, get off your soap box and stop sprouting such rubbish.

Oh dear. Looks like people have swallowed the rubbish put out by the Evening Standard/Daily Mail/Daily Express et al. These strikes are not about pay. They rarely are. These strikes are about closure of ticket offices and loss of jobs for station staff. The Tory Trash press always make strikes an issue due to pay. It a way of vilifying the unions. Most strikes are about degradation of conditions, loss of pension entitlement or draconian measures taken in disiplinary procedures. Unions are democratic bodies run by their members. It's just jealousy when a unionised industry gets better pay and conditions than their non-union counterparts. Unions work hard for their members but are squeezed by undemocratic laws preventing them from following their cause. Rant over.....

Er, excuse me Trotsky, but before I go writing up my placard, where is your evidence that services are getting worse? Stations are getting upgrades, new trains are on the line and I for one as a regular District Line (on the east side of things anyway) user hardly ever experience delays. Fares go up because wages go up.

And the TV license gives us the BBC, which I'm pretty happy to have. The alternative is commercial dross more like ITV's output or Sky dominating the airwaves. Because everyone's a big fan of Rupert Murdoch having as much control as possible, aren't they?

But since you've got this all pegged - when's the revolt you're actually leading so we can all join in and march?

What I don't understand, if you are not happy in a job when change occurs then move to another job! Do the staff on strike think others have it easy? We adapt with change etc coz we make that decision to stay, otherwise we look for a better job. Annoys me that coz they are not happy, it causes chaos for everyone else! Quit and look for another job! simples!

My fare is £30 a week for a zone 1-2 travelcard which lets me travel within those zones as much as I want. That's pretty damn good to me. The new trains are great, I'd love to know what TfL have to be blamed for in terms of there being pickpockets on trains (are you up for a raise in taxes so we can pay for BTP officers on every carriage?) and I haven't seen a tramp on a train begging for money on a carriage in at least six months.

So if you want to see who's moaning, re-read your post!

That's what I thought! The deal is invalid if your delay is because of a strike. You only get a refund if you experience delays and it is their fault, e.g. broken signals etc (and not including planned maintenance).

Just in case you didn't know, the driver's are on strike both rmt and most aslef. They are on strike in support of station staff and management.

My train fair is lot more then £30 a week, and you not seen a tramp in 6 months? well you must be traveling with your eyes closed, cause not one week goes by that i see someone with a fake so called sob story and asking for money or singing a song expecting money and often even seen the same people doing it!

Well i can moan all i like, cause this Country is turning it to a bit of a joke, hence when im older ill be moving to America. So then i want be around to moan or give a dam.

Seems like your taking it bit personal to me... just sick of being inconvenienced for greed thats all

Surely their relationship with their own staff is something in their control and fault lies with tfl and the staff, I'd say this was more in their control than people stealing their cabling making the signals fail. I think they should payout. other half has a monthly travel I have to drive then to an overground station they should refund to cover additional costs.

I actually managed to get cab fairs refunded on few occasions i been delayed due to issues with the line. So is possible if you were to take it further if they refused too.

Why should they not try and fight? I would be. I doubt it will be easy for them to get similar or better jobs (if they aren't as flexable as TFL wants them to be).

Yes you can moan all you like, and if you've got a route into America then good luck to you. But my other half is American, and I can tell you from extensive experience of various states that:

- The working hours are much longer
- The public transport system is virtually non-existent
- You should have little no problem finding vagrants in virtually any state you go to

Grass is greener, etc.

Who on earth is voting this up?! As others have said - they do not pay out for delays due to strike action.

Got nowt against the Tube, pretty essential and you sure do miss it when you live somewhere else.

However; since the Oyster card knows where you are and what journeys you're making, surely these refunds for delays should be automatic.....

We've had the technology for years to have driverless trains, yet in the past strikes have been about pay. Drivers get what 40-50k? . Perhaps if they earnt the average wage the ticket office and station staff could be kept in jobs?
Technology has always put a lot of people out of jobs.

That would be too easy! And TFL would be making too many refunds if this was the case and therefore have to sort their sh#t out!

The strike is over the ticket office closures at some stations, this will inevitable mean jobs losses AND major cost savings for tfl however will it mean our tickets will get cheaper?

I don't f%#&@£g think so!

If the ticket prices are NOT getting cheaper then the ticket offices might as well stay open!

Stop being so thick. BOB CROW IS NOT THE BOSS OF TUBE DRIVERS!!!! Tube drivers ARE NOT striking! This has NOTHING to do with tube drivers!!

How does this work if you've got a First Capital Connect ticket (for example) from the Home Counties with Underground Zone 1/ 2?

They have already paid out millions to office staff to leave the company. the train drivers are next. That Peter and Mike are on over £500000 each before bonuses
