This page tells you who to contact about your staff travel facilities, depending on which category of staff you are.
If your category is not specified, you should get in touch with your own company’s nominated representative.
If you have a problem using Travel facilities on TOC services, you should firstly raise the issue with the TOC concerned. Details of how to contact each TOC can be found on their websites.
If your complaint remains unresolved, then you should then raise your complaint with the Rail Ombudsman. Details are on their website www.railombudsman.org (opens in a new window; please note we are not responsible for the content of external websites) or you can call them on 0330 094 0362 between 08-00-22:00 Monday to Friday (excl. Bank Holidays) and 08:00-13:00 on Saturdays and Bank Holidays (except Christmas Day).
