In the case of a delay while traveling by train in the EU, one is entitled to a compensation in the event of a delayed arrival of 25% of the price paid for a single ticket for delays of more than 60 minutes and 50% when the delay is more than 120 minutes. In the case of business travel where the train ticket is paid for by the employer and not the employee, who is eligible to collect & keep this compensation? The employer or the employee? (Barring any employer-employee agreements to the contrary.)
In the case of compensation paid out under EU Regulation 261/2004 for delayed air travel, it seems that it is quite clear that the passenger (i.e. the employee) is eligible for compensation and that the regulation does not define compensation rights for the ticket purchaser (i.e. employer). Does similar clarity exist in the regulations for passenger rights for rail travelers?
