Ratings and Reviews
Worst App Ever
I do t know where to begin. I would say that monkeys wrote this app, but that would be an insult to monkeys.
When you click on 'tickets' to purchase your tickets, the app rarely finds a route even though the app itself has selected a route to and from your destination. After the app says it cannot find a route, it wants you to re-enter your travel info on a completely different screen. Once you do so, the app hangs and you have to exit the app and start this loop all over again.
If, by some miracle, you advance after you click the tickets button to put in your seat preferences, etc., once you enter your email address and click "continue as guest", the app hangs. Why yes, I have tried registering. The app does not think my phone number is legitimate, which means you cannot register.
I am trying to buy round trip tickets to Exeter. The app has been hung for the last 34 minutes.
In 10 days (I installed the app 10 days ago), I have only been able to purchase tickets once.
Horrible piece of work.
Remove (or fix) Purchase Option
After entering all (including card) details, an error “something went very, very wrong” comes up. Try PayPal: the log in screen loads BEHIND your little message so it is also totally useless.
On a positive note, the price is slightly better than direct via the train company’s website, so another painful experience (that shouldn’t be needed by this stage) finally allowed me to purchase the tickets I needed.
TOTALLY BAD EXPERIENCE
App stuck and can't purchase tickets
I was able to make a purchase of one ticket which several times to do before it finally submitted. When I tried to do another purchase, I clicked tickets, picked my time and then hit buy now and kept being taken back to the results from my previous purchase. Tried refreshing, reload downloading the app and neither of that worked. Giving up on the app
