The old app is so much better. This one is less intuitive (especially adding saved passengers) and feels laggy. Engineers, replacing a great working native app by something similar to's horrible webview isn't the way to go. What makes trainline so great is the clean UI and lag-free experience. Sure, this web-based version will be easier to update but what's the point if you're giving up the main features?

Change date/time option no longer works. 'Account' page has some bugs - 'messages' always has a loading icon and the 'feedback' button creates an error message that's too long to the display so I can't actually see what the error says. I've never been able to get the live chat to work either in the app or online, it always seems to tine out and refresh.

This app usually works well but two problems have led me to ditch it: 1. It shows fares as being available when they're not. This is most frustrating when making a last minute purchase - you get to payment page, click 'buy' and get a message saying the ticket is sold out. You start again and the ticket for the same fare is there again, but with the same outcome when attempting to book. I've missed trains due to this glitch - argh. 2. It charges a £10 admin rate when processing refunds.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, Peter. We have a tiered fee structure for refunds, meaning the fee applied will depend on the price of your ticket. As we rely on the Train Operators for updated ticket availability, we can only apologise if any tickets sell out. Thanks, Jamie
