National Rail Conditions of Carriage

The National Rail Conditions of Carriage (as updated from time to time) sets out the minimum level of service you are entitled to expect in relation to your train journey. They also set out your rights and responsibilities in respect of any train journeys made on the UK railway network, including the liability of the train companies in respect of loss caused by the delay and/or cancellation of any train, by any missed connection or by the closure of the railway as well as in respect of loss or damage to, and delay in the delivery of luggage and its contents. View the National Rail Conditions of Carriage. Where the rights set out in the National Rail Conditions of Carriage are extended or restricted by the train operating companies with whom you may book tickets through this website, details of these extensions or restrictions will be provided to you with your journey summary prior to purchase.

The National Rail Conditions of Carriage entitle customers to the same levels of compensation or refund entitlements regardless of where they purchase their ticket.

Fees and credit card charges

No booking fee is charged to you for making a booking on the Loverail.com site. National Rail train companies however do impose standard charges for some activities such as refunding a ticket and issuing a replacement ticket in the event of loss or theft. Where you are undertaking these services we will charge the standard National Rail fee.

Due to the credit card processing charges levied by credit card companies, there is a £1 charge payable on top of the ticket price in respect of purchases made by credit card via this website. Purchases made by debit card have no charges applied. Where credit card charges are applicable, these will be identified during the booking process and in your order summary.

You will be responsible for all charges and taxes payable as a result of your use of this website, including any cost of accessing the website (for example, internet access charges or mobile data charges).

Issue of Season Tickets

When we have confirmed your booking by email to your registered email address, we will fulfil your Season Ticket. While we endeavour to have tickets delivered in accordance with timescales supplied by our delivery agents, we cannot be responsible for any guaranteed delivery times.

Please check your tickets when you receive them. If you believe that the tickets we have sent you do not meet the information you provided at the time of booking through our website, please contact us. You must ensure that you are in possession of the Season Ticket booked before you board the train. If you cannot produce a valid ticket for the class of accommodation and service that you are using, you will have to pay the appropriate fare on the train and a penalty fare may also be payable. The train operating company reserves the right to refuse to accept your ticket to the extent that it is unsatisfactorily displayed or to the extent that they have reason to suspect that a fraudulent use of booking confirmation, transfer to a different person, or other abuse or reproductions, copies or counterfeits of any ticket are in circulation.

Getting your Season Ticket

We use a range of postal services provided by Royal Mail to get your Season Ticket to you, as shown below. We reserve the right to change from time to time which services are offered. Due to the high value of a Season Ticket, a tracked delivery method such as Royal Mail Special Delivery or Signed For (Recorded) are recommended to be used by LoveRail.com. If you decide to select a non tracked method of delivery and chose for your Season Ticket to be sent by First Class Post and it subsequently is lost in transit and not delivered, then while we will do everything reasonably possible to help find your tickets, you will not be reimbursed by LoveRail.com and a replacement ticket must be purchased. For full details on the services provided by Royal Mail including any delivery guarantees or compensation paid for loss or delay which are available on each service see www.royalmail.com.

Where a Season Ticket is purchased at a cost of £1,000 or more, then only Royal Mail Special Delivery will be available as a delivery option and the customer should make sure that either they or someone they authorise is available to sign for the ticket upon delivery. No charge will be made for the cost of delivery.

First class post

We will dispatch tickets by Royal Mail’s First Class delivery service to the address you specify during the booking process. You should ensure that the address provided is correct.

Royal Mail “Signed For” (tracked)

We will dispatch tickets by First Class post to the address you specify during the booking process. You should ensure the address provided is correct. You (or someone you authorise) will need to sign for the tickets upon delivery.

Special Delivery Guaranteed Next day delivery by 1pm

We will dispatch tickets by Royal Mail Special Delivery to the address you specify during the booking process. You should ensure that the address provided is correct. You (or someone you authorise) will need to sign for the tickets upon delivery. Please note that for deliveries to remote locations different guaranteed delivery times may apply.

Returning your Season Ticket

If at any time you need to return your Season Ticket to us, for example for a refund, changeover or if you need a replacement ticket, then we strongly recommend that this is sent by a postal method which is both insured and tracked, as any loss or delay will your responsibility. Under National Rail retailing rules we are, in most cases, unable to process your request if we are not in receipt of the original ticket.

Compensation and Refunds for delayed or cancelled journeys

If the service on which you have booked to travel is cancelled or severely disrupted you may be entitled to compensation or a refund. The different National Rail train operating companies currently operate different compensation schemes. Some still operate a Passenger Charter discount scheme whereby a discount on future Season Tickets purchases are given if there has been poor performance on either a specific day(s) and/or a prolonged period of time. In these cases we automatically monitor and calculate any discount to which you are entitled and apply it to your Season Ticket renewal, subject to the National Rail conditions. The applicable Passenger Charter discount for each train company operating under this scheme can be seen on the individual train company websites and it will be displayed in any railway station they operate.

Most Train Operating Companies however now provide compensation for delays/cancellation for Season Ticket holders under the National Rail Delay Repay scheme, whereby National Rail vouchers are issued for specific affected journeys, which can be redeemed against any future journey(s), generally within a 12 month period.

If you wish to make a claim under the Delay Repay scheme you need to contact the relevant train company and you will need to make a claim directly with the train company concerned.

Unfortunately we are not permitted to issue compensation or refund tickets for cancelled/disrupted journeys, but we do accept National Rail vouchers towards full or part payment of Season Tickets.
