Editors' Notes

Anyone who’s booked train tickets in the UK knows it can be a labyrinthine task. Am I buying off-peak tickets? What is off-peak? What is “super” off-peak? Am I getting the best deal? We were thrilled to have all this—and more—finally made clear as day by a souped-up Trainline app. It’s become as essential to our train travel as a fully charged phone battery.

Overall a really useful app


I have used this app for a long time now and would rate it among my most essential. So convenient and easy to use which is vital when you’re travelling, and each update seems to only enhance these attributes.

What stops me giving this 5* is that whenever I use mobile tickets, the app never generates a seat reservation for me (that I have ever been able to find anyway). Each time I select the option to have a seat reserved, and I am met with the same problem. Would be great if this could be sorted (or perhaps explained to me?) as I think the idea of mobile tickets is brilliant from an efficiency and environmental perspective, but when I am travelling on busy trains it is pretty annoying that I seem to have to choose between running for a seat or queuing at ticket machines, especially as I pay so much for them.

However, this is a minor flaw in an otherwise incredibly useful app that I use most days.

Essential tool for commuters

PP Sagaaaaaa

I've had this app on my phone for a while now, having had the ojp (national rail) app on my phone previously. Some of my friends have had high praise regarding this, so I downloaded it.

At first, it may seem like a standard app - shows you train times and prices, with the option of adding railcard options in - great. But the most handy part is the tracking option for the train - you can click on the 'live tracker' option and see exactly where your train is. It's great when you're standing on a freezing cold station wondering where your train is, checking if it's running and gives you such an accurate picture of where it is.

I commute to uni on almost a daily basis, and this is so handy for me - I use it every time I travel. Couldn't recommend enough
