Delay Repay 

If you receive compensation from delayed travel, you can now choose to donate this amount to our chosen delay repay scheme charity partner. Our chosen charity at CrossCountry Trains is Brain Tumour Research Charity.

Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they are the leading cause of death in more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

Your donation will help them to fund the fight against brain tumours. For more information on the charity please visit the Brain Tumour Research website. If you are not eligible for our delay repay compensation you can still donate to the Brain Tumour Research Charity.
