Ratings and Reviews
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.
Trainline is a life saver!!
The individual train companies in the UK are so mean about refunds. Ive been delayed over half an hour multiple times and refused any kind of repayment by Northern Rail. They even cancelled my train WHILST I WAS SAT ON IT and kicked me off at a random station and STILL refused to refund me! Recently I spent over £50 on a train ticket and then my train was completely cancelled. The next 3 trains were also cancelled. So I cancelled my event and went home. By the time I got home, they had un-cancelled the trains! And they refused to refund me because they told me I should have just got the next train!!
Thankfully trainline came to my rescue!! I filled in a very very short application on the trainline website that explained my situation and they said they would talk to the train company and “do all the leg work for me” and they did! I got a full refund very quickly! Thank you so much trainline!
The application online for Avanti refunds didn’t even have the option of “abandoned journey because of cancelled trains”. So there was no way for me to appeal. The train companies are so stingy, even after they ruin your whole journey or kick you off in the middle of the country somewhere!
I recommend trainline to everyone travelling so that you don’t get scammed out of your money by avanti or northern rail etc.
Thank you trainline!!!
they are THIEVES- do not buy from this app
There is absolutely nothing good about train line. I accidentally booked my ticket on the wrong date so I refunded a minute late after I bought the tickets, they have a £10 refund policy and I was meant to get my money back within 5 days however I never got my money back in the end.
I payed for a £100 ticket and they never refunded me and stole all of my money. I was already mad about the £10 charge for refunds so I accepted it since I’d get at least £90 back but after 5 days I never got my refund back. So I called them and they said random excuses and told me that due to policies they can only refund me £20 of what I bought 😀. But they couldn’t even refund me my £20 in the end. And after looking at different apps I found that there are much better and cheaper and more trustworthy apps which DO NOT STEAL YOUR MONEY and they do not have a refund charge either which is very helpful. I believe anyone who is using trains apps for the first time should do their research first and be careful with which app they buy their tickets from and they should DEFINITELY NOT BUY FROM TRAINLINE!! Otherwise they’ll scam you.
