A MoneySavingIdiot claims for a train delay

Options
My name is MSE Kelvin (spoiler: not what my folks named me) and I'm an idiot with money. I've no excuse - after all, I write for the UK's biggest consumer website. But sadly, while I play a part in helping people save every day using MoneySavingExpert, my personal relationship with cash is a mix of fleeting highs and lingering regret.

    worth also pointing out that South Western Railway (SWR) have been having problems with their new delay repay portal (people on twitter have reported problems resetting their password to migrate to the new system).

    The message is definitely just keep plugging away. Had problems with Trans Pennine going to Newcastle, and had to submit claim a couple of times
    No acknowledgement or explanation but I noticed they had paid 25% of fare into my account. As it was over an hour late I emailed saying I had expected more and they paid a further 25%, but by cheque !
    Never got an an explanation or apology for the delay
