TheTrainLine Customer Reviews

Always a quick and efficient system when booking through!

I often book through and found them to be extremely efficient on line and posting the tickets, next day! I had to obtain a refund one time and the system was very easy to use and the money was refunded into my account no problem. Would not look for any other company to buy my tickets. Very satisfied!

The Trainline Customer Reviews

I always book through Trainline, it's quick and easy to use the website and have always got my tickets on time by post or simply picking up at the station, I always recommend your website to frineds.

1st time using Trainline website

I found the Trainline site easy to use, and although I was a bit apprehensive about booking my tickets from London to Brighton since the trip was the next day but I was able to pick them up at the station with no hassles. The only annoyance was that the website makes you sign up for an account and there's no option to check out as guest, which lengthens the process a bit.

Trainline - Beware if booking through phone app

I booked a couple of tickets through trainline phone app and was delighted at the cost but... When I picked up the tickets they were for different times than I booked. I emailed them and they eventually agreed to refund but only if I re-booked with them. So I called them and they couldn't match the price I had paid. To cut a very long story short, I 've had to post, recorded delivery, at my expense, the tickets back to trainline and wait for a refund. Really not happy with them at all!! My advice, if you are going to use trainline, don't do it on the phone!!

Used it for years - very efficient!

I've been using theTrainline for years to book regular travel up and down the country. The website is easy to use, you just type in your dates, locations and they provide you with the trains available. They present all the ticketing options so you can get the most value-for-money option for you and it's really quick. You pay (you can save your details so you don't have to fill payment details in every time) and then you receive a code by email that you can use to pick up your ticket, or you can opt to get your tickets sent to you in the post. It really is an efficient service and it has never failed me. The only problem I have is if you need to change or cancel your train it's difficult to get a straight forward exchange or refund. That really is my only complaint though. Love this website!

Shopping Tips for TheTrainLine

Offers and Deals For You

Best Fare Finder

If you’re more bothered about getting the best deal going than travelling on an exact time and date, take advantage of the Train Line’s Best Fare Finder. To use this handy tool, all you need to do is select your departure and arrival destinations along with the rough dates you wish to travel. With this info, the Best Fare Finder will show you the lowest prices which match your destinations and rough dates. Remember that in order to get the best prices possible, you need to be flexible!

Buy in Advance

One of the easiest ways of making some huge savings the next time you travel by train is to purchase your train tickets early. Tickets usually go on sale up to 12 weeks in advance. So if you get in there early and get booked up around 12 weeks ahead of time, you’ll save up to 43% compared to the price you’d pay if you waited until you were at the station on the day of travel to buy your tickets. Unfortunately, advanced tickets are only available on certain train journeys, so you’ll need to know exactly which train and which day you want to travel on in order to save.

Buy Singles Instead of Returns

As bizarre as it sounds, two single tickets can sometimes work out cheaper than one return ticket. So when searching the Train Line website for a return journey, don’t simply dismiss the single tickets – compare the prices of the single and return fares if you really want to get the lowest price possible.

Hotel Deals

As well as low-cost train fares, the Train Line also offers huge savings on hotels. With prices starting from just £10 per room per night, these deals get snapped up unbelievably quickly. So if something catches your eye, make sure you book it up fast before someone else beats you to it. You can book your hotel room up to one year in advance and you don’t have to pay a single penny until you arrive at the hotel.

Cheap Theatre Tickets

If you fancy a night at the theatre, check out the Train Line’s theatre ticket deals. Whilst it might not be the first place you’d think of looking when searching for theatre tickets, the Train Line offers all kinds of fantastic promos, including free dinners when you buy selected packages and up to 60% off musicals and plays.

National Railcards

Do you seem to be constantly on the train? Then you could save a small fortune on your travel costs by buying a National Railcard. There are six different cards available for different travellers, each of which costs £30 per year, with the exception of the disabled person’s railcard which costs just £20 per year. The discounts which come with the cards vary from card to card and include things such as: save 1/3 on rail fares throughout Britain and 60% off child fares.
