TransferWise is an online money transfer service. It is fully licensed and regulated with many global watchdogs and it is safe and reliable to use. Their website is www.transferwise.com
When the initial payment has been taken directly by the Train or Bus operating company, we do not hold your financial information and therefore are unable to issue a refund via the original payment method. TransferWise enables us to refund you any monies due, without ever seeing your bank details.
You will be sent an email from firstname.lastname@example.org within 10 working days of your AS response. Please ensure that you check your junk/SPAM folders for this email. Please click the “complete your transfer” link within the email and follow the instructions on the page you are directed to. A step by step guide is provided below.
Please ensure you have checked your junk/SPAM folders and allow 10 working days from the date of your AS response. If you have not received your email within 10 working days and you have checked your junk/SPAM folders, please contact the Appeals Service via the “Make an Appeal” section of the website.
You only have 5 days to collect your refund, before TransferWise return the funds to us. This is because they are not permitted to hold funds for longer than 5 days. If it has been over 5 days since TransferWise contacted you, please contact the Appeals Service via the “Make an Appeal” section of the website.
If you do not have a UK bank account, please ensure you select IBAN for your GB bank account details.
