How Newcastle United fans can get a refund on their train tickets and hotel bookings after Sunday’s Premier League clash at West Ham United was postponed following Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

Newcastle United fans and other supporters across the United Kingdom are searching for ways to get a refund after this weekend’s Premier League action was postponed as a mark of respect for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who sadly passed away on Thursday.

The Magpies sold out its away allocation at the London Stadium to watch their side take on West Ham United on Sunday afternoon, meaning match and train tickets have been paid for, as well as overnight hotel stays.

Can I get a refund on my match ticket?

Supporters should retain their existing West Ham away tickets as they will remain valid for the re-arranged fixture.

The club, once a new date is confirmed, will likely provide refund information for those unable to make the re-arranged encounter at the London Stadium.

Can I get a refund for my train tickets?

If you have a mobile ticket and it has already been activated, you can no longer claim a refund on that journey.

To request either a change or refund, login in and click “My Bookings”.

Can I get a refund for my hotel?

Please check with your hotel directly.

For example, when booking at a Travelodge or Premier Inn, both companies offer a standard rate and flexible rate.

Standards rates are usually non-refundable. Flexible rates, however, allow for amendments or cancellations up until 12pm on arrival date.
