How to Get a TrainPal Refund on Your Own
There are several different ways you can try to get your TrainPal refund, each corresponding to a different situation.
These tickets are non-refundable, so if you can't attend your trip, you cannot get your money back. However, you are able to change the details of the ticket to better suit your situation.
This category is composed of three kinds of tickets: Anytime, Off-Peak, and Super Off-Peak. If you cancel your ticket before 28 days have passed since the purchase date, you will be eligible for a refund. You can cancel your flexible ticket on the TrainPal App by viewing "My tickets" and selecting "Refund" for the booking of your choice. You can also use the app to check the status of your refund as you wait. If you have physical TrainPal tickets, you will need to mail these in before your refund can be processed.
The address to send your tickets to is:
Train Services Team
1st Floor, 1 Lochrin Square
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Once your tickets are received, it will take around 3 working days for you to receive your refund. It will appear on your original form of payment.
Ticket Refund Fees
Even though you are able to receive a refund for your TrainPal ticket, you are required to pay a fee. The value of this fee differs depending on how much the ticket purchased cost.
The change fees per ticket from TrainPal are as follows:
- Up to £1.99 / No fee
- £2.00 to £4.99 / £0.99 fee
- £5.00 to £9.99 / £2.50 fee
- £10.00 to £14.99 / £6.00 fee
- Over £15.00 / £10.00 fee
Once you've requested a refund for your ticket, you cannot rescind the request. Make sure you don't need the tickets before doing the required time-consuming steps that it takes to receive a TrainPal refund.
