Best UK rail app
Far far better than the dated National Rail app, and the Apple Pay integration is great.
If I had to criticise, the live trains section does not work at all as I'd expect and is pretty confusing to use. Also one time I priced tickets on here and on National Rail and they were significantly cheaper on National Rail. I had assumed the fares would be identical, with the only difference being the booking fee in this app, however it appears this is not always the case. That said the opposite happened today, with this app getting prices £80 cheaper than National Rail offers.
Overall this is the best rail app in the U.K., just be sure to double check the prices on the National Rail website.
Brilliant! But a small plea...
My ticket immediately to hand reminders to activate it no paper to waste or lose and useful reminders about times, any changes to schedules and even the weather - don't forget your brolly!!!
All this even for a couple of pounds cost ticket to the next village - quite incredible!!!!
So my little plea: business travellers need a receipt - date and journey details and cost... on one page because it needs to be printed and submitted as an expenses voucher. I can't see how to get a single page receipt off the app!!!
Quick and simple to use
This has made my many recent trips by train so easy! As someone who hasn't really used trains until now (student life) this allows me to clearly see where I'm going, including all of the stops and estimated times! This has meant I'm not panicking over getting times or platforms wrong as I can check them in 2 seconds, been so helpful and a lot easier to understand compared to other similar train ticket retailers
