I have an overnight train journey Stockholm–Hamburg, in about 10 days from now, booked through SJ (Swedish railways). I was just notified that due to track works, the train will terminate not at Hamburg-Altona (a fairly central station) as originally scheduled+booked, but at Pinneberg (on the outskirts of the Hamburg local transit network), due to track maintenance.
So to reach my original destination, I’ll need to take a short extra S-Bahn journey. Should I be eligible for reimbursement for the cost of this journey? In the notification of the rerouting, SJ recommend this S-Bahn connection, but have not offered any booking for it.
(In this case, the cost is small enough that it’s probably not worth the trouble of claiming anyway. But I’m interested now to find out the general principle — all summaries I can find of rail passengers’ rights, e.g. here, focus on cancellations and delays, but don’t discuss route changes like this.)
