30-08-2010

Czech Railways will in future compensate passengers on SuperCity, EuroCity and InterCity trains for delays or failure to provide the expected comforts, such as air conditioning, the internet news site iDnes.cz reported on Monday. Compensation will be paid to travelers with tickets worth over 300 Czech crowns, In-gold and In-gold business passes. The company has stressed it would only compensate passengers for delays or poor service for which it can be held directly responsible. Delays caused by floods, an accident or bad weather will not be compensated.
