Did you know that if your Tube is late by just 15 minutes you are entitled to a full refund for the journey? No, well we didn’t either and there are loads of times we’ve been stuck in a rather cramped tube between stations so we thought we’d give a quick mention to a website that aims to get tube users money back. Called Mytubewaslate.com we think it’s a great idea and have even added it to our Top Rated Websites for this month.
About The Website
The first thing you need to know about Mytubewaslate.com is that it is totally free to use and will actually save you a small fortune. If you are a regular Tube user you will be aware that from time to time (cough) tubes are late and can mean that you miss a meeting or even get into trouble at work so the website has brought in a very easy to use process to claim back the cost of your journey if you use an Oyster card or season ticket so here is how it works.
Simply register for free on the Website and then next time you are on the Tube check how long your journey should take (if it is on time)you will then know for the future if the journey is running late and if you can make a claim. All you then do is every time the Tube is late simply go to Mytubewaslate.com and sign in and their system will print you out the claim form to make a claim, or even better it will submit the form online for you. As an added bonus the site also emails you every time your journey is delayed so even if you forget to check on the day they give you a reminder.
What We Think
We think Mytubewaslate.com is a brilliant idea, not only does it help passengers claim back money for poor service but it will encourage Transport For London to get it’s act into gear. There is absolutely no effort on the users part, simply register and log on and then post off the claim form or submit it online (To a freepost address as well !!!).
If you are fed up with late tubes check out Mytubewaslate.com and claim back a small fortune.
