What's New in Version 6.5.1
Pop quiz: What is the biggest (rail) mystery of the modern age?
Answer: What or when is peak, off-peak and even, super off-peak?
While we work on the time machine to go back and undo this unfortunate complexity, we can, in the mean time, make the mystery a little less, well, mysterious.
+ Better tickets
Our tickets now show you exactly which trains you can travel on, whether it’s an anytime, off-peak or even super off-peak ticket BEFORE you buy. This means you will always get the ticket you need without requiring an encyclopaedic knowledge of the rail industry. Yes, you already had in my tickets once you had bought a ticket but now we shall liberate everyone!
+ Better results
lightning bolt = speedy trips home. When you see it on your search results, rest assured that train will arrive first at your destination. Handy!
Have a safe and pleasant journey.
Excellent App - Can't imagine being without it now
Not long ago I started using thetrainline website to buy all my tickets in advance because it saved so much hassle than buying at the station and that's not to mention the savings.
Now that I'm travelling more and more on the train I thought I'd give the app a go. I think it's fantastic and has helped me avoid missing my trains as well as informing me how close I am to my destination. The app updates almost immediately after purchasing tickets (if you have an account with them) and with the collection reference number displayed on demand it also makes the collection process that much easier.
All in all this is a great app which does the job very well and is a must for anyone using thetrainline to buy their tickets.
New version of app
New version is ok but lacks a favourite front page for ease. This also looks no different to my train providers website. But they have more features.
Come on TheTrainline you can do better.
Also cannot see where on-peak and off-peak times are as sold to me.
And as for everyone else moaning "the app doesn't work...it used too" shut up and stop rating it a 1. It's fixed so adjust your moaning feedback and stop throwing your toys out of the pram so fast.
Don't Let One Update Ruin It's Rating!
A great app that does not deserve to be slammed on the basis of one broken update. Essential for even casual train users, and has saved me from a couple of potentially trip-missing issues in the passed.
