Booked a coach ticket via the app. Clicked to process the payment but within the app the on screen payment processing wheel kept spinning before eventually timing out – delivering no confirmation of purchase notification within the app. …

Railcards
They will only accept Passport or a Driving License as I’d for a 16 year old. Birth Certificates or National insurance numbers aren’t good enough. …

It is cheaper to buy the tickets at the station than from this lot. Seems a bit pointless to me on this basis. Have never used before, and after discovering this today will most definitely not consider using again.

I forgot to bring my weekly season ticket for a day and had to pay for travel both ways even with proof of purchase you can CLEARLY SEE I PURCHASED A WEEKLY SEASON TICKET VIA ONLINE APP AND I HAVE THE PURCHASING CARD AND ID. Why can I not just reprint the ticket?

Would give 0 stars if I could. Cancelled trains, no way to rebook, have to wait 6 days or something for a refund and no clear view of which trains are running to rebook them. Completely unhelpful and they make it as hard as possible to speak to them.

I requested a refund and was not issued a paper ticket but customer services insisted that I had collected it and refused to help me and also refused to let me speak to their management and then hung up the phone on me. This cost me over £100, very unhappy with their service.

I don’t think it’s worth a star – I booked a ticket to Chartham which was cancelled due to rail problem. Per Trainline policy they should have refunded within 10 days but after three months nothing. I have been using trainline for years, and would recommend it to others, but this incident is extremely disappointing.

Bought a 16-25 railcard but it doesn’t work for my journey. They refused to refund me and just said I should’ve checked the terms and conditions and didn’t care. I cannot afford my travel to uni so I was looking for alternative options and they said there’s nothing. Fuming and appalled.

Train cancelled. Didn’t travel. Applied for a refund. They demanded that I then pay to have the tickets mailed to them physically to verify them, despite having my TCR number, as well as all of the travel details. Terrible customer service.

Don’t use this company. They take your money without having a ticket for you. Now I have waited 3 weeks for a return of my money. You are just funding them if you try to book a ticket through them. It looks like they have a ticket but.

Do not use trainline! It may seem an easy option but it’s actually cheaper to go direct with the train company you need and also they make it impossible to get refunds and send you round the houses. Would have been quicker to go get a job at McDonalds and earn my money back!
