Great app, helpful support

I chose Grand Central because, unlike other companies, they don’t charge a booking fee (big plus). It’s easy to find services and the best fares. Due to unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel my most recent booking and rang the help line. The person I spoke to was friendly and very helpful and arranged a refund straight away. It’s the sort of excellent customer service which backs up an excellent app and I really recommend it

Saved address

Great app, better than other services used. Issue with the saved address box but otherwise really simple to use

Temperamental App - be wary!

Sometimes the app opens fine and sometimes it doesn't and just keeps loading, saying 'please wait a moment'. Which is unhelpful when needing to get through ticket barriers or on a train needing to show the conductor a ticket.

I would advise to avoid relying on the app and use the option of picking up your ticket at the machines. Or if you do get the app, make sure to screenshot your ticket when the app is working in case it stops working during your journey!
