How to get a refund for your 15-minute late Tube journey
Are you a Londoner who has to use the Tube? Or a tourist who has also been forced to travel on the underground network of horrible iron snakes? Nasty isn’t it? But did you know that if your harrowing snake ride is late by 15 minutes or more, you are entitled to a voucher refund of your journey cost? Well get this – you are!
Back in July, 31,356 people applied for refunds, bagging themselves a total of £84,661. But crucially, almost a million more passengers who were victims of late Tube journeys didn’t try and get their money back, either through lack of awareness or because the process was too laborious.
Helpfully, there’s a website that supposedly acts as a one-stop shop for late journey claims – mytubewaslate.com. The site lists all late Tube journeys and once you find the one you were on, click on it and they’ll do the rest for you. Then you simply sit back and wait for your compensation vouchers, that you can then use on another cramped, uncomfortable trundle through the darkness of our capital’s detestable rat-infested underground network.
