Lost something on your journey?
If you've recently lost an item/s on one of our trains or at one of our stations, we'll do our very best to help reunite you with your belongings.
We have recently partnered with MissingX, the world’s leading provider of lost and found solutions and Zero Burden Service to help make the process of getting you things back as easy as possible.
Please use our lost property system to search for your item/s using the link above. If your item/s have been found on our network, they will then appear after your search and you will be able to claim it. If the item doesn’t show up on the system after your initial search, then you will need to register the item/s to log them as missing.
This will then be recorded in our database and you will further be contacted if your property has since been found.
If it has been over 4 weeks since your item/s was first lost, but it has been found on our network during that time, by this point it will have been passed to our partner Zero Burden Service to store for the remainder of the 12-week storage period. If you think this applies to you, you can search to see if your item has been stored with Zero Burden Service here.
Returning your item/s
Any lost items found across our network on trains or at stations are passed to ‘Hub stations’ and logged within our internal system, before being passed through to our Lost Property Office (LPO) in Newport. This process may take a few days, so please be patient and don’t give up hope.
If we have found your item, you can then choose to reunite with it by either arranging delivery by courier, or by picking it up in person from our LPO in Newport.
