Your tickets, even if they were operated by the same railway undertaking, are not contractually linked. So, if you miss a connection because of a previous train delay, you can request to be re-routed on another train or to be reimbursed of the first train, and a compensation of 25% or 50 % of the ticket price depending on how late you were with this first train.
But you will not have a right to a refund of the missed train journey or compensation.
- Find out the conditions of your tickets for each journey and each carrier. They may allow for a free change or a refund of the missed train with or without penalty.
- If you have travel or cancellation insurance, check whether this is covered.
