If you’re unhappy with the response you receive from us, you have the right to appeal to The Rail Ombudsman.

The Rail Ombudsman is there to help resolve on going complaints between us and our customers. It’s free to use their services and they are independent of the rail industry.

You can appeal to the Rail Ombudsman if:

  • you’re unhappy with our final response to your complaint which will be contained in a letter or email (sometimes called a ‘deadlock letter’); or
  • we haven’t resolved your complaint within 40 working days of receiving it; and
  • No more than 12 months have passed since we sent you our final response.
