About this app

Are you sick of standing at the freezing cold train platform, waiting for that delayed carriage that may never come? Are you tired of cramming into said carriage (if it does turn up) like cattle, your nose hovering in someone's ear? It’s time to hop on over to Seatfrog.

Download the Seatfrog app and leap into a world of flexible, first-class train travel. As a Seatfrogger, you can book train tickets to thousands of destinations across the UK and swap your journey on the day, without delay. You don’t have to miss out on life’s best moments anymore.

Oh, and if you think you have to have a **fat wallet/be a big spender** to travel First Class (darling), think again. You can upgrade from a standard seat for as little as £10 by entering our daily auctions. Place your bid, and if you win, we'll put you in a lavish seat with extra room and all of the luxuries that come with it. Lovely.

Oh, you can also buy instant upgrades, which are still dead cheap compared to the usual eye-watering asking prices.

Here are our mighty Seatfrogging partners:

Great Western Railway, Avanti West Coast, TransPennine Express, CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway and London North Eastern Railways. Plenty of top-notch routes to enjoy in pure luxury. We’ll toast to that.

Train travel doesn’t have to be a drag. It’s time to get things back on track. Download the Seatfrog app.

I used to use this app a bit and managed to get a couple of upgrades and it worked fairly well. Just reinstalled the app now I've started travelling on trains again and every train I search for just says the auction has closed early. Add this to the constant pop ups that keep asking me to refer my friends has left me thinking this app is not what it used to be and become a waste of time and effort.

I would give it more stars but for some reason when entering payment details all the boxes are black so you cannot see what you are entering. Phone is a Samsung S9+ at latest level. Update- night mode seems to make black text on a black background. Possibly dark mode is not supported correctly?

Hi Stewart, we've got a fix for this. We'll be releasing a new version of the app very soon.

So far I have only used Seatfrog once, for a first class upgrade. The app is not particularly user friendly; finding stations is not easy - why are they not at least listed alphabetically? I also didn't get notification that my auction bid had been successful until 15 minutes before the train departed, by which time I had bought myself a sandwich for the journey.

Our auctions usually close 30 minutes before the service is scheduled to depart, and you should be notified as soon as the auction closes that you're a winner - both via an app notification and a confirmation via email. If you can pop us an email to, we'll be happy to look into this for you.

What's new

Just a small update this time to fix bugs we’ve noticed!
