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.

Great app


I hadn’t used Trainline in a while but it had updated a few times. In my last review I said I wanted more info for the routes and they’ve given us way more than that. So much so that I’ve had to write this review because I’m so impressed. Seriously good app now with the info - eg. You can see whole train routes rather than just the stops you’re using. You can see how many seats are free on the train and everything else you’d need to know. It’s all so well put together and intuitive. Well done guys I know how hard it is to get these things right but this is great work!
