Virgin Trains Tickets
By Virgin Trains
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Train travel – some say with all the different times and fares and ticket types and all that, it can be a little bit confusing (and we’d agree with them too), especially when you want to find out info on the train you want to catch.
Well thanks to our top technical geniuses, we’ve got a new and improved app which will make your travel experience with us so simple you’ll wonder how you lived without it. Check train times, plan journeys and buy tickets for any train anywhere in the UK (with no booking or credit card fees too!). And best of all, it’s 100% totally and utterly free.
Plus, book yourself on one of our swanky Virgin Trains and get your ticket sent straight to your mobile. No fuss, no queuing, no printing – it’s your ticket delivered directly into your pocket.
Also, want to see if your train is on time? You can see real-time info on how any train is running across Britain, and even which platform it will arrive into at your station.
· Search times and fares for any train to any destination in the UK.
· Buy tickets up to 10 minutes before you want to depart.
· Book for up to 8 people at once.
· Totally secure booking.
· Absolutely no hidden booking or credit card fees (we hate those!)
· Get tickets sent straight to your mobile or collect from our FastTicket machines.
· Log-in to your account so you only need to enter your details once.
· Check live departures/arrivals info to see how your train is running, before you even get on it.
· And you get all this for the one-off payment of... nothing! Free things are always the best things in life.
We’re big fans of our app, and we plan to keep on improving it even more in the future. Our brainy types are working on new features all the time to make your travel experience with us easier than ever before. But if you’ve got that million-dollar idea, that missing nugget of genius that we haven’t included in our app, then tell us! Found a hitch or a glitch in our app, then let us know. We’re open to suggestions and we want to hear what’d make it better for you. So please get in touch at App@virgintrains.co.uk
What's New in Version 1.76.0
You can now collect Virgin Atlantic flying club points from the app!
We have re-organised the ticket wallet to make it easier for your to find you tickets.
We have scaled the app to fit on an iPad screen.
You can now access Transport for London real time information as well as our Twitter feed.
Thank you for all the feedback and watch this space for more updates!
Still some options missing
It's good to be able to buy tickets without having to go to a machine but the big flaw in this app is not being able to select your seat ie quiet coach or window/aisle seat as you can online. In particular being able to select quiet coach for early morning travel is important. Virgin have promised for ages this would be added - but still no joy.
No email notification of ticket when booked using mobile
I don't understand the logic of not sending an invoice/ticket via email when the ticket is booked using virgin trains app on iPhone. It is nice to have the ticket/invoice in email for any future references. The tickets purchased over an app will not be visible after 30 days.
Please send a ticket confirmation email for future references, especially when they need to be claimed after a business travel.
When do we move into the 21st century?
Why is it that with train companies all over Europe and throughout the airline industry tickets can be booked online without the need to collect from a designated machine with a specific credit card? Madness which drives me not to use the service for children and relatives due to restrictive booking requirements. Please review...
