Nothing huge to report in this update, so we thought we'd give you some fun facts instead.
1. Europe's terminus with the most platforms – 32 – is Munich Hauptbahnhof in Germany.
2. Switzerland’s Jungfraujoch station sits high up in the Alps at an elevation of 11,332 ft. earning it the nickname Top of Europe.
3. The world's oldest railway bridge in continuous use is Skerne Bridge in Darlington, UK, which opened in 1825 and still carries trains to this day.
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
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!!!
App crashed and unable to download
*update* I have since found out my phone didn't have spare memory, once I deleted a few things the app downloaded and works fine! Thanks to the developers for offering to investigate further :)
App was not allowing me to open it (it was greyed out) so couldn’t show my ticket at the barriers. Luckily the ticket attendant trusted me. I uninstalled the app and tried to reinstall it and it isn't downloading to my phone. It could be that it’s a bug with my phone but not had the trouble with any other app. Otherwise, good app when working!
Developer Response ,
This sounds pretty odd, though sorry to hear about the trouble that you've had.
We're not aware of any app or E-Ticket issues recently but we'd like to investigate further for you. So when you have a moment please send us a Tweet or Facebook message mentioning your review here and we'll get some more details from you.
