How to's.

If you're not quite sure on something, for example; how to use e-tickets, or submit a delayed travel claim, then look no further we've got your back. Use the links below to navigate your way to help.

Collect rail tickets

There are a few ways to collect your rail tickets. The most environmentally friendly is an eTicket.

eTicket

An eTicket is an electronic version of your ticket, often in the form of a QR code and available from your rail booking, or via our mobile app. Once downloaded to your smart phone, simply scan at the turnstiles or when asked by rail operating staff.

Collect at station

Or otherwise known as Ticket on Departure (TOD). 

 

If you have chosen a TOD as your collection preference, you will have a ticket collection reference on your booking. When arriving at your departure train station, go to one of the self-serve kiosks and follow the on-screen instructions.

 

When asked to enter your booking reference, enter what is on your booking. If you have requested a return journey, remember to print both journeys.

Print at home or self-print

If you have opted for a print at home ticket, this will be similar to an e-ticket and use either a QR or barcode for scanning. The details will be contained on your booking confirmation. Print your tickets on plain white paper and remember to take them with you.

Refund an unused/uncollected rail ticket

How to get a refund for an unused/uncollected rail ticket.

If you no longer need to travel, please contact your Agiito travel team who will be able to advise you of the next steps to obtain a refund.

If you've already collected your tickets and wish to apply for a refund, please still contact your Agiito travel team, as not all rail tickets are refundable (Advance Singles).

Anytime and Off-Peak tickets are refundable minus the cancellation charge. For uncollected Anytime and Off-Peak tickets only, please send them to the team by secure post and we'll get it sorted.

Rail ticket exchange information

The below information will provide details of what you need to know when exchanging your rail ticket. To see how to exchange your Advance Purchase rail tickets online, please visit the learn section of your Connect portal, followed by help and support where a short video tutorial is provided on how to exchange your rail tickets.

Please note that a valid rail exchange can only be made if the following conditions have been met:

  • The routes must be like for like with no variation.

  • The same train operating company has been used.

  • The same traveller name is on the tickets.

  • The tickets to be exchanged must be re-booked after the original booking was made but before the original date and time of travel.

  • Tickets can only be exchanged if they were booked through Agiito.

Other key information

  • All tickets are subject to an industry £10 administration fee per ticket, in addition to an Agiito administration charge.

  • Tickets exchanged should be of equal cost or more than the original tickets. No refund will be provided for the difference between the two ticket costs if the exchanged tickets are less than the original booking.

  • Only ‘Advance’ tickets can be exchanged for a new date or time. The new booking must be rebooked before the date and time of travel noted on the original booking.

  • If you have already printed or collected your original ticket(s) from your onsite office or train station ticket printer then we will need the original tickets to be sent back to Agiito via a secure postal method, to the address below. Please note where tickets are sent by first class post and subsequently lost in transit or not delivered, we cannot process the exchange and you will be charged for both bookings.

Book for a guest traveller

From time to time, you may need to book travel for a guest. Here's how to do this through our Vibe platform:

 

  1. Log in to your Connect portal. 

  2. Open the 'travel booking' pages.

  3. Select Guest Traveller or start typing guest in the passenger box.

  4. Guest travellers do not have a profile loaded so all details will need to be entered manually.

  5. Once you have completed all the fields and taken to a payment/confirmation page, you will be able to add the guest travellers details.

  6. Enter the traveller email address and tick the box to receive a copy of the confirmation.

Complete an 'unfinished trip'

If you've received an email saying you have an 'unfinished trip' in your portal, it means you've left the booking process without completing everything. This will mean your trip is not confirmed until you complete the booking process.

 

During this time you may have been sent an email confirmation of the trip, however until you receive your full itinerary your booking is not confirmed.

 

To finish the booking process, log back in to your booking process and follow any on-screen notifications relating to this trip, to either confirm it, or cancel it if you no longer require the trip.

Split ticketing in four simple steps

Split ticketing is a technique that can reduce the cost of a rail ticket by dividing the route into shorter sections on which cheaper tickets are available vs. the standard full journey price. It is a valid and legal way to save money on the total cost of the rail ticket. The train you are on must call at the station where you change from one ticket to another (meaning you won’t have to get off the train).

Check out the split ticketing routes and information below, if your route is included then split ticketing might be an option for you to save on the cost of your rail ticket.

  1. Is your route one of the five key company routes included below?
     

  2. Proceed to book the first ticket from your origin station to the split ticket point indicated in the routes section below.  The ticket type that should be selected is standard anytime day return or standard anytime return.  Proceed to confirm your booking, making a note of the arrival time your train arrives at the split ticketing point specified. 
     

  3. Proceed to book the second ticket from the split ticket point to your destination, ensuring you select a standard anytime day return ticket and the timed trains from which you will be arriving on from your origin station. At this point you are not expected to exit and re-enter the train. If you need to check the times of the train, click on the ? Icon next to the timed train which will show station stops.
     

  4. Both tickets will be booked and you have successfully booked your split tickets, well done! If your seat numbers are not aligned then please contact your offline team who will make a seat reservation on your behalf on the services you have booked.

Considerations

  • Split ticketing does not offer a saving on advance tickets. Advance tickets provide the best opportunity to save money whilst off peak tickets also provide a smaller opportunity.

  • Capita travel and events always recommend purchasing more restricted advance tickets as opposed to split ticketing, savings on most key routes by taking dual advance tickets will far outweigh split ticketing.

  • Ticket refunds – If you need to refund your tickets two refund fees will apply.

  • The train must stop at the station where the split occurs.

  • Seat reservations will be made in different seats for different parts of the journey, although our offline team are able to make a new seat reservation for you.

 

*All prices and information shown are correct as of February 2019.

Savings based on Day tickets, higher costs may apply if Day tickets cannot be utilised.

Getting started.

Claiming for delayed rail journeys (rail delay/repay)

What is delay/repay? 

Delay/Repay is a nationwide scheme which all train operating companies (TOCs) participate in whereby travellers can claim compensation for delayed and cancelled rail journeys.

The delay is calculated against either the normal timetable, or an amended timetable that is published in advance (for example during planned engineering works at weekends) and it doesn’t matter what caused the delay, travellers are able to claim all or part of their journey costs.

 

The level of compensation a traveller is entitled to depend on:

•    The train operating company, and  

•    The length of the delay in arriving at your destination 

 

Different train companies have different schemes in place. For example, some operators allow you to claim compensation if you’re delayed by as little as 15 minutes but for others, compensation will only be paid if you arrive at your destination more than 30 minutes late.

 

Can Agiito make the claim on my behalf? 

Unfortunately not. Agiito cannot make a claim on your behalf as many rail operators do not accept claims from anybody other than the traveller themselves. You should discuss with your travel manager how compensation is to be paid back into your business. 

 

How to make a claim                                          

You will be required to make the compensation claim directly with the train operating company that you travelled with. It is important that if you are making a claim, you keep a copy of your ticket to share as evidence. If travelling on a paper ticket as opposed to an e-ticket, a photo of the paper ticket will suffice.

Below is a handy table with a link to delay/repay section of each train company’s website with further information on how to make a claim. The below information is accurate as of March 2022.
