4. The Hotspot Description
4.1. The Hotspot is a wireless data service using radio frequency to access the Internet. CrossCountry offers the Hotspot for activities such as the active use of e-mail, instant messaging and browsing the Internet. These services may require Users to have accounts with third party service providers. Some information and material (for example software) is supplied to CrossCountry by third parties and CrossCountry offers no guarantees or contractual promises in relation to that information or material. Please be aware that you cannot use the Hotspot for the following reasons (this list is non-exhaustive):

4.1.1. Watching catch up TV (e.g. BBC iPlayer, ITVPlayer etc)

4.1.2. Downloading very large files

4.1.3. File sharing (e.g. BitTorrent)

4.1.4. Video sharing sites (e.g. YouTube)

5. The Hotspot
5.1. Although CrossCountry will endeavor to provide a high standard of Wi-Fi service at all times, due to the nature of the services the User acknowledges:-

5.1.1. that it is technically impossible to provide the Hotspot entirely free of faults and that CrossCountry does not undertake to do so;

5.1.2. that faults may lead to temporary unavailability of the Hotspot; and

6. Use of the Hotspot
6.1. If you hold a valid first class ticket for the train journey you are making you may access the Hotspot free of charge (on services which have wi-fi available) and there is no need to purchase a Hotspot Voucher. Access is gained either through the Hotspot portal directly or by obtaining a printed PIN code voucher from the Senior Conductor on board (for journeys on CrossCountry's 170 train type). You are permitted to access the Hotspot for an unlimited period of time during that train journey, although data restrictions may apply. Printed PIN code vouchers provide 2-hour access and on expiry an additional code can be obtained from a member of CrossCountry's staff (subject to availability).

6.2. If you hold a valid standard class ticket for the train journey you are making, you may purchase a Hotspot Voucher, subject to these Terms and Conditions. At present you can purchase a Hotspot Voucher directly through the Hotspot service pages, or via a printed Hotspot Voucher from CrossCountry's service-at-seat (subject to availability). The pre-sale website (available at the following web page: www.crosscountrytrainswifi.co.uk) allows you to pre-purchase a Hotspot Voucher for your journey at a reduced price in comparison to the equivalent tariff bought on board the train.

6.3. You may purchase a Hotspot Voucher for a specific period of time for use of the Hotspot by you. We offer one type of Hotspot Voucher - elapsed time (where the length of time of access is measured from when you first log-on to the Hotspot and will expire at the end of the allocated time regardless of whether you are browsing the Internet or not).

6.4. Once purchased, Hotspot Vouchers can be used on any service operated by CrossCountry. The Hotspot Vouchers are not train, journey or route specific (though can only be used on CrossCountry trains).

6.5.1. not to use the Hotspot for any unlawful purpose;

6.5.2. that it shall not make any use of the Hotspot such that the whole or part of the Hotspot is interrupted, damaged, rendered less efficient, or the effectiveness or functionality of the Hotspot is in any way impaired;

Delay Repay

Delay Repay Terms & Conditions

If your journey was delayed by 30 minutes or more, irrespective of the cause, you will be entitled to claim compensation under our Delay Repay scheme and in line with our Passenger Charter. You will receive compensation based on the following guidelines:

Delays of 30-59 minutes

50% of the cost of your single ticket or 50% of the cost of either portion of your return ticket.

Delays of 60-119 minutes

100% of the cost of your single ticket or 100% of the cost of either portion of your return ticket.

Delays of 120+ minutes

If either or both the outward or return legs of your journey are delayed by more than two hours and you have a return ticket, you will be entitled to receive up to 100% of the cost of the return ticket

How to Apply for Delay Repay

Please print and complete a Delay Repay form (PDF) or complete our online Delay Repay form. Please make your claim within 28 days of the date of the delay.

We do not normally accept claims for compensation if trains are delayed or cancelled and you were aware of the delay before you bought your ticket.

In the event that we introduce an emergency timetable, compensation will be based on the emergency timetable.

Season Ticket Delay Repay

In the case of Season tickets, Delay Repay compensation is calculated based on the proportional single ticket price paid for that journey. For example, the daily proportional cost of a seven day ticket is calculated based on an assumption that ten single journeys are made per working week (five return journeys).

The value of a single Season ticket journey is as follows:

  • Annual Season ticket: 1/464 x total price
  • Quarterly Season ticket: 1/130 x total price
  • Monthly Season ticket: 1/40 x total price
  • Weekly Season ticket: 1/10 x total price

Individual season ticket compensation calculations may differ, depending on the ticket validity.

Should a period of sustained poor performance be experienced, we will consider compensating Season ticket holders over and above the arrangements outlined. In doing so, we will consult Transport Focus, the independent national rail consumer watchdog.

Your Compensation Checklist

So that we can process your application and get your compensation back to you, please make sure that you let us have:

  • Either the original ticket, or in the case of Season tickets a photocopy of the ticket and your photocard, your booking confirmation e-mail, or your unique journey number.
  • Your name and the address for our reply.
  • Information about your journey, including the date you travelled, where you were travelling from and to, and how long you were delayed.

We normally issue compensation using either Rail Travel Vouchers, PayPal, or BACS.  Please confirm when you submit your claim how you wish your compensation to be paid.

In accordance with your legal rights as a consumer you may be eligible to a different level or method of compensation where CrossCountry is at fault and nothing set out above is intended to limit or exclude your legal rights in these circumstances.  If you believe this applies to your journey, please contact our Customer Relations team 

Many of the stations we serve have automatic ticket gates. These gates are supervised during their hours of operation. If you need to retain your ticket on completion of your journey, instead of using the gates please show your ticket to a member of staff.

Mobile tickets must be activated from within the Mobile Application before boarding the train in order to validate the Mobile ticket. The Mobile Device must be capable of running the Mobile Application and clearly presenting the Mobile ticket in a legible manner.

Due to the wide variety of Mobile Devices and networks we are unable to offer technical support or assistance. You may incur data usage charges from your mobile network provider for downloading a ticket. You should check with your network provider as to what charges may apply.

If tickets have been booked for more than one passenger, all passengers should travel together.

The ticket must be stored on your Mobile Device until the date and time of travel and such safekeeping shall be your responsibility. Mobile Tickets are non-transferable.

By purchasing an Mobile Ticket, you agree to cooperate with the train inspector and let him/her clearly view and scan the ticket on your Mobile Device and you acknowledge that you may be requested to hand over your Mobile Device voluntarily for inspection and scanning. If you do not produce your ticket or hand over your Mobile Device upon request by the train inspector, the train inspector shall be entitled to consider that you are travelling without a ticket.

Some train operating companies apply additional restrictions to the use of Mobile Tickets - you must note any additional restrictions notified during the booking process.

etickets: For some bookings we will allow you to use an eticket. Where you select an eticket we will email you your tickets and you will have the option to use the eticket in one or more of the following ways:

  1. Open the PDF attachment and show the ticket on your Mobile Device. If you are using this option then you must ensure that your Mobile Device can receive email and display a PDF attachment prior to purchase. It is your responsibility to ensure that you carry your Mobile Device on the relevant journey and that your Mobile Device is charged, functional and that you are able to display the ticket on your Mobile Device for inspection when you travel. You may incur data usage charges from your mobile network provider for downloading a ticket. You should check with your network provider as to what charges may apply. The ticket must be stored on your Mobile Device until the date and time of travel and such safekeeping shall be your responsibility. You agree to cooperate with the train inspector and let him/her clearly view and scan the ticket on your Mobile Device and you acknowledge that you may be requested to hand over your Mobile Device voluntarily for inspection and scanning. If you do not produce your ticket or hand over your Mobile Device upon request by the train inspector, the train inspector shall be entitled to consider that you are travelling without a ticket.
  2. Print the eticket. If you are using this option then the terms relating to PYO tickets set out above will apply to your use of the eticket, save that ID is not required for etickets.
  3. Download the eticket on the Mobile Application. If you are using this option then the terms relating to Mobile tickets set out above will apply to your use of the eticket.
  4. Download the eticket into your Apple Wallet if you're using an Apple Wallet enabled Apple device, and show the ticket on your Apple Wallet enabled Apple device. To do this is simple: whilst you are on your Apple Wallet enabled Apple device you must access and open the email that we send you with your tickets, and click on the live link to Apple Wallet. If you are using this option the terms relating to the first type of eticket listed above ('Open the PDF attachment and show the ticket on your Mobile Device') will apply, except that there is no need to present a PDF ticket for inspection if you have downloaded the eticket into your Apple Wallet; instead you should display the ticket using Apple Wallet.

You must ensure that you present your eticket for inspection and scanning in one of the ways described above.

An eticket can only be used by one customer for one valid journey. It is a criminal offence to amend and/or reproduce an eticket for fraudulent use. Where more than one customer presents the same eticket for travel, both may be deemed invalid for travel. You shall have full liability for any fraudulent use of your eticket. Trainline shall have no liability for any fraudulent use of etickets.

Use of Location Data

Information about your location or approximate location may be used by our Booking Service. We obtain and use this information in two main ways:

Internet traffic information, such as your IP address: This information is provided automatically as you use our Booking Service and can allow us to infer your approximate location - for example your city or county, and country. We use this information:

for analysis purposes to understand the distribution of our customers;
to tailor messages or advertisements shown on our website - for example if we identify that you are likely to be located in Manchester, we may show you promotions relating to journeys starting in Manchester.
Location information provided by your browser or device: Many web browsers, particularly on mobile phones and tablet devices, are able to accurate report your location, for example using GPS technology. The same is true for apps on mobile phones and tablets. These browsers and devices normally ask your permission before sharing your location with a website or app, and you can usually disable the feature altogether in the device settings. We use this information for features that need to know your location - for example if you select "nearest station" or "next train home" and for other search functionality features.

Security

We take the security of your data very seriously. We employ physical, electronic and administrative security measures to protect the information that we collect about you from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the data protection laws.

Links to third party Internet sites

The Website and Mobile Application may contain links to other sites and sources of information. By clicking on these, you will leave the Website or Mobile Application (as appropriate) and this Privacy Policy will not apply to your use of any other sites.

Our Mobile Application

Your use of the Mobile Application

We allow you the right to download, install and use the Mobile Application on your mobile handset to access the Booking Service in accordance with these terms and conditions.

You may not use the Mobile Application for any purpose other than to access the Booking Service. You do not and will not own the Mobile Application or any information that is provided to you through it or the Booking Service, but you may use these things in accordance with these terms and conditions.

The Mobile Application is provided to you free of charge and on an ‘as is' basis. We have tried to make sure that it will work on each compatible Mobile Device, however, we do not promise that the Mobile Application will be suitable for your needs, or that it will work accurately or in a particular way. All implied promises or warranties related to the mobile application, and access to the booking service through it, are excluded.

Data charges and access

The Mobile Application requires a correctly configured and functional internet data connection, both for the initial installation, and for use.

Data charges may be charged to you by your network provider depending on your individual tariff. You are responsible for any such costs. Note that if you are using the Mobile Application on an overseas network, the cost of data usage may be considerably higher than when at home.

We are unable to provide any warranties as to the levels of connectivity you will receive via your Mobile Device. This may depend upon your tariff, your network provider or your corporate policy if you have a work-issued handset. We will not accept any responsibility for any connectivity issues you may experience.

Please contact your network provider or visit their website if you require assistance configuring a data connection for your Mobile Device.

Support & Communications

While we have tried to get a broad coverage of Mobile Devices, our Mobile Application will not work on all Mobile Devices. Please refer to our Website for details of the Mobile Devices which are able to download our Mobile Application. Download and operation success may depend on Mobile Device settings.

If you have any queries or problems with the Mobile Application, please look at our FAQs for answers to the most common questions we receive from users. If the FAQs do not assist, please contact us at: [email protected] or 0371 244 2389.

We may send communications to you through the Mobile Application. These communications may include marketing material, technical and support information, and information on updates or changes. By using the Mobile Application, you agree to us providing you with such communications.

Please note that we may cease to operate and support the Mobile Application, or a particular version of it, at any time. If this happens, you will be unable to access the Booking Services through the Mobile Application (or the relevant version of it) and you may be unable to download or install fresh copies of the Mobile Application. Where we think that it is reasonable to do so, we also reserve the right to either require you to delete the Mobile Application, or to remotely deactivate the Mobile Application from your Mobile Device.

Updates & Availability

From time to time, we may issue updates to the Mobile Application, in which case you may not be able to continue use of the version of the Mobile Application installed on your Mobile Device without downloading the relevant update. If we issue an update of the Mobile Application without disabling our earlier version installed on your Mobile Device, we nonetheless recommend that you download and install all updates issued. We cannot accept any liability for errors which become apparent in old versions of the Mobile Application.

We are able to suspend access to the Booking Service through the Mobile Application. We can do this for any reason, but will usually only do so when carrying out maintenance on the Mobile Application or the systems supporting it.

Security

You can use your Mobile Application to store details of your bookings, favourite journeys and payment card details. You should ensure that your Mobile Device is protected by a suitable PIN number or password so that if lost/stolen your stored details cannot be used or accessed.

Liability

Your mobile telephone supplier and manufacturer, airtime service providers (which for clarity includes telecommunications carriers) and any other retailer acting through an online store portal through which the Mobile Application is distributed, shall not be liable to you in any manner whatsoever in relation to Mobile Applications made available through their channel partners and associated service providers, including (without limitation) in relation to the sale, distribution or use thereof, or the performance or non-performance of the Mobile Application.

Taking part in particular Panel Activities may be subject to separate terms and conditions, which will be notified to you from time to time.

3. Membership of the Panel

To become a Member and to participate in the Panel Activities, you need to register by completing a registration form and opening a Membership Account. The registration form may be available on the XC Trains Limited website or another website hosted by XC Trains Limited, and may be accessed via third party websites or via links in an email/social media message sent to you by us or a third party on our behalf, where you have granted permission to receive these types of communications. The registration form may include any number of questions or may just require your consent to join the Panel. You must be aged 16 years or over to be eligible to open a Membership Account, and Membership is not available to employees of XC (or their families), agents of XC or any third party directly associated with administration of the Panel and/or Panel Activities.

Only one Membership Account is allowed per individual. Where we become aware that a Member has multiple Membership Accounts, we reserve the right to delete any Membership Accounts which are additional to the first Membership Account opened by that Member (“additional Membership Accounts”). Any rewards or prize draw entries accrued in relation to additional Membership Accounts may be forfeited and we may demand reasonable proof of identity in the event of a dispute in relation to a Member’s identity. A unique email address must be used for each Membership Account (for example, this means that multiple family members will not be able to have Membership Accounts using the same shared email address, but each family member may have a separate Membership Account using a unique email address). Each Membership Account may only be accessed by the individual Member assigned to that Membership Account, and may not be accessed by any other individual. You agree to notify us as soon as possible if you become aware of, or suspect, any unauthorised use of your Membership Account or any other breach of security. In the event that your Membership Account is accessed by another individual, we reserve the right, where it is reasonable to do so, to freeze the Membership Account until a resolution has been reached. We reserve the right to reclaim any incentives or prize draw entries earned as a result of access by any unauthorised user, for which the Member will have no recourse against XC.

4. Undertaking regarding information required

You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your access to, or use of, your Membership Account and/or to restrict you from taking part in Panel Activities. This is subject to your right to refuse to take part in any Panel Activity.

5. Rewards for participating

Members may accrue rewards by taking part in Panel Activities. Any reward accrued for taking part in a Panel Activity will be notified to Members using authorised communications. You acknowledge that registering to become a Member and taking part in Panel Activities does not guarantee that you will accrue rewards of any kind. Members will only be entitled to rewards in relation to Panel Activities where they have followed all instructions which have been notified to Members in relation to the particular Panel Activities. In the event that a Member fails to correctly follow any such instructions, XC may reserve the right to refuse to grant an award in relation to the relevant Panel Activities, for which the Member will have no recourse against XC. XC may also ask Members to take part in Panel Activities which will give Members the opportunity to enter into a prize draw. Any prize draws will be governed by separate terms and conditions as made available from time to time.

We may offer monetary rewards to Members for participating in Panel Activities, although we do not give any guarantee that Members will receive monetary awards. It is our understanding that the payment of monetary rewards to Members for taking part in Panel Activities is taxable income. Members are not our employees, and it is the sole responsibility of Members to report and pay all taxes due in respect of any income earned from taking part in Panel Activities to the relevant tax authorities. We will not be responsible for any taxation or related costs resulting from any payments made to Members, and Members will be fully responsible for any such taxation and any related costs.
