Claiming Refunds For Delayed Tube Journeys: There's An App For That

tube-refund.jpg Forget your fancy augmented realities and real-time displays of Tube times. Here's a simple app that every iPhone wielding Londoner needs: a super-quick way to claim back compensation for delayed tube journeys. Just tap in a few details about the time and location of your delay and the software does the rest.

You're entitled to a refund for any journey delayed by more than 15 minutes, but the official web-based form is less mobile and requires you to fill in all the boxes each time you claim. This independent app stores your key information, meaning you only have to fill out the journey details each time you want your money back. Plus, if the tools are in your pocket, you're more likely to remember while the thistles of ire still scratch.

Currently, Tube Refund only supports Oyster and Travelcard journeys on London Underground, but a National Rail functionality is in the works. TechCrunch notes that a similar app, called iRefund, is also available. Both can be purchased from the iTunes store for 59p.
