A travel time guarantee means a refund of the cost of alternative transport, including taxi when granted by Arriva, when delay or failing to stop causes waitng time beyond 30 minutes.

In order to qualify for “pendler rejsetidsguarantee” one has to register one’s commuter route.

Specifically for travelers on Vestbanen operated by Arriva:
In case Vestbanen is delayed, Arriva will cover expenses for a taxi or driving your own car. The travel guarantee covers up to 50 km. To be applied for.


”Basis rejsetidsgaranti” you can apply for when arrival at your destination station is more than 30 minutes delayed.

“Pendler rejsetidsganati” compensates you for delays of more than 5 minutes and is calculated quarterly as an average of the trains running on the route registered by the individual commuter.

For “pendler rejsetidsgaranti” compensation is monetary. Application demanded.
