What's New in Version 6.8
Two tap refunds.
Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get, except when it’s the last one and it’s that coffee creme you’ve been avoiding.
You eat it anyway as you’re in need of a chocolate hit but it’s always a little bit bitter. Refunding a train ticket used to be that way, you’d really like your money back but you delay it until absolutely the last moment. Or worse still, you forget. Until today.
Every ticket now has a ‘Manage my booking’ button from where you’ll find the magical Refunds button.
We take care of the rest, if you haven’t collected your paper ticket or you have a mobile barcode ticket, boom, your refund is processed immediately, just sit back a wait a few days for the money to hit your account. If you have collected your paper ticket already then it’s a bit old-school - you’ll need to post it back to us (the app will tell you how), and when the refund is processed your app will tell you.
Just sweet chocolate all the way!
Have a safe and pleasant journey.
Superb app. I use it all the time. Finds me the cheapest tickets, which I can then buy through the app, stores all my itineraries, and gives live updates of which platforms to use, any delays, and accurate arrival times. It's a pleasure to use. One definite improvement required is a barcode ticket, which would do away with the need to collect paper tickets. A simple thing to mention, but no doubt a complex event to create.
Great App, needs a fix though
Great App, already given it 5 stars previously.
However since releasing Apple Pay support, I have not been able to make it work. In my account settings, the Apple Pay option takes me to setup a new card even though I already have 2 cards on Apple Pay.
Also, it would be great to have a dedicated App Dev contact address to report issues such as this and avoid losing stars for issues such as this.
Great...but only if you have loads of money!
If you want to pay way over the odds for a train ticket, then this is the app for you! If you have more money than sense you'll love it. If, however, you want cheap tickets, then avoid it. Disgusting that they charge unsuspecting people so much more than they should be paying. If you love paying booking fees & card charges, this is the app for you. If you'd rather just pay cheap fares, use another (any other!) app. Remember, train fares are the same price wherever you buy them. Only trainline charges fees on top though.
