Disruption compensation

Delays are rare on our services, but when they do occur, we have a generous compensation policy in place to make it up to you.

Disruption Compensation

How to claim

If you were delayed by more than an hour
You can claim a Eurostar e-voucher to use on a future journey. The longer the delay, the more you can claim.
Just hang on to your ticket, wait 24 hours, then claim your voucher online within a year of your disrupted journey.
We ask that you wait a day so that we have all the details to hand and can send your voucher straight away.
We’ll email your e-voucher to you within five minutes and you can use it immediately at eurostar.com.
It’s valid for 12 months from the date of your original journey, so you can take your time to plan your next trip.

If you haven’t travelled yet and your train is cancelled or likely to be delayed by more than an hour.

You may decide not to travel, in which case you can:

  • Exchange your ticket for free and travel on another date within 120 days (90 days if your booking involves onward travel with another train company), subject to availability.


  • Request a full refund, regardless of your original ticket conditions.

You can claim either of these options from wherever you bought your ticket, up to two months after your original travel date.
