How it works.

In three steps.
365 days retroactively.

1. Check eligibility

We will check all your train tickets for eligibility of a compensation - retroactively up to one year.

2. Claim

As soon as we determine a possible claim, we submit your claim at the respective railway company for your corporation. Completely free!

3. Receive monthly transfers

We will send you the successful compensation payments on a monthly basis (minus success commission, plus statutory VAT).

89% of business travelers let their compensation expire.


If you are already too late anyway, do you also want to fill out a cumbersome form the Deutsche Bahn? Most people don't! Due to the high bureaucratic effort, most business travelers do not even report a delay and the money for the compensation payment gets lost. 

The consequence:The majority of compensation eligibilities expire and possible payouts get lost.

Will the business travelers receive the compensation?

Yes and no. If you wish, first your business travelers get the opportunity to claim a compensation. If your travelers do not submit the compensation, we will claim the compensation for your organization. A fair compromise for everyone involved. Better than leaving the money with the railway company, right?

Frequently asked questions 

Here you can find answers.

No, because

  • each ticket must be submitted individually. (Quite a lot of work with several hundred cases).
  • if travelers forget it, it is like the paper form before. -> You will lose considerable sums of money.
  • if the booking was made via online booking engine, e.g. Concur Travel, the online form in the DB Navigator cannot be used.
  • the follow-up communication after the submission (queries etc.) remains as before by post (!).
Nothing. refundrebel can carry out the analyzing and compensations WITHOUT intervention of your travelers.

We work 100% success-based according to the “No Win, No Fee” principle. For you, this means guaranteed security with no hidden costs. In other words: We will only receive a commission (30% of the compensation amount plus VAT) if we can really enforce compensation for you. This means you do not pay any setup fee or running costs to refundrebel - instead, you simply receive transfers through your compensation payments.

For you, refundrebel is just a finger exercise: you can have your OBE / TMC / travel agency send you exports on a regular basis and forward them to refundrebel, e.g. quarterly. refundrebel takes care of everything else for you. You will then receive monthly payouts from refundrebel. You don't pay anything and instead receive transfers.

No. The travel agency can only submit compensation if the travelers report a delay there. So if the travelers forget this message, the possible payout is lost.

refundrebel has a unique database of train delays which allows to identify your eligible compensations by comparing the delay database with your train bookings WITHOUT the action of your travelers, even up to 365 days retrospectively. This will give you more payouts than before.

The following example helps to shed light on this question. With repayments of up to 11% of your annual rail expenses for business travel, a considerable amount comes together. Example: With annual expenses for train tickets of € 600,000, you will receive repayments of up to € 65,691 (commission already included). Is this worth it for your organization?

refundrebel is not a travel agency, TMC or OBE. This means that refundrebel does not make bookings, cancellations and refunds from cancellations. However, we work very closely with your team and your OBE / TMC / travel agency in order to get the maximum amount of compensation for you.

Yes. Your flexible tickets will also be compensated for. Even if you take a different train than the one shown on the ticket.

"Mythbuster" No. 1 - You do not need a written proof of delay from a train attendant to assert claims for compensation.
