How to submit a claim to Trenitalia
This article is for travellers seeking compensation for delays, cancellations or discomfort during travel (e.g. broken air conditioning) for Trenitalia train tickets in Italy. If you aren't sure if your case is covered or need extra help, you can contact us at [email protected] for further information.
IN THIS ARTICLE
There are different processes and online forms for high-speed/intercity and regional trains. See the instructions for different train types below.
or ticket number
Your "PNR code" is a 6-character reference that is used by the operator to identify your tickets. For "paperless" tickets, it is the same as your ticket reference. Regional trains don't have a 6-character PNR, but you'll find a longer ticket number on your print-at-home tickets.
You can find this in your Rail Europe booking confirmation email e.g. for Frecciarossa #9607 enter 9607.
You'll need an IBAN and BIC/Swift code to receive a bank transfer directly from the rail operator if your claim is approved. You can usually find these on your bank statement but if you aren't sure, please contact your bank.
Receipts for any other expenses incurred (if applicable)
If applicable, you should submit receipts for expenses in accordance with the Conditions of Carriage, e.g. alternative transport/taxi receipt, or a hotel bill if overnight accommodation was necessary. A photo/scan of these documents is acceptable, but we recommend retaining the original copies until your claim is resolved.
Evidence of exceptional circumstances
If you are seeking reimbursement for non-refundable tickets due to the death of an immediate family member or serious illness of a traveller (requiring hospitalisation), you will be required to submit a death certificate or certified proof of hospitalisation. A photo/scan of these documents is acceptable.

Submitting a claim for high-speed/intercity trains
Claims for high-speed and intercity trains can be made via an online form.

Tips for completing the form
Approved payments will be made via bank transfer directly from the rail operator to the account specified by you on the claim form and a confirmation email will be sent by Trenitalia.
