If your journey is delayed for any reason, it would be appreciated if you could write to Customer Services at Great Western Railway. Attached is an example of a Compensation for delays form, which is valid from September 2015 and information and on how to make a claim. When a claim is made, it is ncessary to enclose your tickets as without them they will be unable to process the claim. This form is for guidance only.
These forms can be pciked up at staffed stations
It is not necessary to use one of these forms and a letter can be written instead.
There is a FREEPOST address and this is as follows -:

You can send it to the address above or FREEPOST envelopes are available at stafffed stations
Tel - 03457 000 125 (0700 to 2200 daily)

A separate form on an A4 piece of paper is on this website and may be used, and again this is for guidance only.
Which ever way you decide to proceed with the claim, please do not forget to send your tickets, as Great Western Railway will be unable to process the claim without them. If going through a station with a ticket barrier which swallow the tickets up, please speak to station staff who will be able to let you through and keep the ticket
I am sure the Great Western railway appreciated good comments as well as information about delays and if you feel that the service was excellent or a particular memeber of staff excelled themselves, then wirte using the form below
In the Frequently Asked Questins section there is a question regarding buying a ticket for travel and the leaflet describes suggestions regarding buying a ticket before you board, to avoid penalty charges and prosecution.
