A free new service offers London commuters refunds for cancelled or delayed journeys.
If you’ve travelled by rail in London, you’ve likely experienced a significant delay on your train or tube journey.
Now, a free service called Reeclaim will automatically determine whether you’re due a refund and sort out the payment for you.
To use the free service, create a Transport for London (TfL) account on Reeclaim.com and add the details of your payment method. (You won’t be charged for using Reeclaim, and your data isn’t held or sold to third parties). If you pay for a trip using the account you’ve registered with and are delayed for 15 minutes or more on London Underground and Docklands Light Railway (DLR) services, or 30 minutes or more on the Overground and TfL Rail, Reeclaim will automatically submit a refund request to TfL, and you’ll be credited the full amount.
“With almost two million commuter hours lost on average each month due to delays, we are here to give consumers the refunds they deserve, minus the hassle of having to manually claim back on every delayed journey,” said Reeclaim founder Zevi Sternlicht, who used his programming background to develop the platform after he attempted to request a refund himself and realised just how long the process takes. “We are not associated with TfL, nor do we take any commission, so the user gets to keep the whole amount of the refund – we intend to keep it that way too.”
According to the service, Reeclaim has already processed over one million journeys in the past year, totalling more than £80,000 in refunds. You can sign up for the service here.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
