Website/app sucks.. been trying to book a ticket and anytime I chose a ticket, it'll reload and the price goes higher. When I tried something ans did the higher price, there was no problem with picking my ticket then I went back to lower prices and reloads again. "Somethimg went wrong" Be expensive if you want to be. Just stop trying to lure people in by showing a more affordable price and changing it.

This is a great travel tool. I just spent seven weeks traveling in Switzerland, Italy, and Austria. All transportation was purchased through Trainline and it worked every time. I used it for long distance travel and for daily, spontaneous, short distance travel. I was able to cancel a couple trips the day before and arrange a different route. Refunds were rapid when requested. Tickets on my phone worked every time. I tried individual national train apps but Trainline worked better.

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?
