  13. Are you owed money by Southern?

    Brighton station

    If you had a Southern season ticket last year, and you haven't been told you're eligible for a refund, you should contact the operator now.

    Last December the government announced a one-off compensation scheme just for Southern's passengers, to make up for the severe disruption of 2016.

    You'll get a payout if you had season tickets for at least 12 weeks, between 1 April and 31 December.

    Southern says it's already contacted passengers who qualify, but if you think you do and you haven't heard anything, you can check here .

    Quote Message: Last year was very difficult for Southern passengers and I am glad this scheme recognises this. I would urge season ticket holders to go online and claim if they believe they are eligible for compensation.' from Angie Doll Passenger Services Director, Southern
