Term Time Tickets
We have a refunds and allowances policy, as for our Trio, Solo & Railpass tickets, but if your ticket is lost or stolen we do not have to issue a replacement.
Tickets cannot be re-sold once they have been purchased from Merseytravel or any of its officially appointed agents and therefore we regret refunds are not allowed.
