Can I appeal against a Penalty Fare and what is the process?

If you are issued with a Penalty Fares notice you have 21 days to appeal against it or to pay it.  The address/process is set out in the paperwork handed to  you by the revenue inspector.  If the appeal is upheld  you do not have to pay the penalty, only the outstanding fare.

If the appeal is rejected then the appeal body will write to you asking for payment within a set time (usually about 14 days). It is only after this point that administration charges are applied.
