The app often has issues with booking tickets, causing you to fail the booking or double book. Often you cannot refund the double booked tickets. Also, they will sell you tickets with cancelled connections and not refund the full amount. Had I not noticed that the connection was cancelled I would have been stuck in Bologna for 27 hours. Then they won't refund you a ticket for the full amount, rather refunding 50 dollars for an 80 dollar ticket. Just buy direct from the train, pointless app.

Hello, I am sorry to hear your trip was disrupted and you were unable to get a full refund. Please contact our customer service team here so we can look into this for you. Thank-you, Aoife.

The app requires you to fill out profiles so it knows who is traveling then allows you to book conflicting journeys anyway. The mistake was mine on the date, but they could and should have easily have prevented it. Customer service was no help at all as you might expect. Now I have 2 first class tickets I can't use and I will be renting a car instead of dealing with this.

Hi Drew. If you're booking UK tickets, no passenger names will be required. For some EU journeys, customers are required to enter passenger details and it's unlikely those can be changed once the booking has been confirmed. Thanks, Jamie

Customer service doest appear to exist. I don't understand why this app has high reviews. It suggested the wrong station to purchase a ticket, highlighting it as the best option. Once purchased, it kept erroring out and wouldn't let me update the ticket to a new station or time, and then refused a refund. So I had to spend 3 times more on a first class ticket on short notice. Working as designed? You have to use Google to find out the actual station you need, so what's the point of this app?
