scraps booking fee

Online travel merchant has decided to toss its booking fee so that it can take over as the cheapest place online to purchase train tickets.  As an industry first customers are now welcome to head over to the website to get their tickets at the best price possible with no hidden fees attached.

Director for the website, James Bain, stated that due to the fact rail fares have increased in price over the last few months regular train passengers do not want to face higher tickets but now since there are no booking fees, debit card fees, or delivery fees associated with any purchase from the website they can actually expect to almost pay less., unlike other online travel retailers, offers its customers a loyalty programme. This innovative scheme – the first and only rewards scheme available for train travel – allows travellers to earn points for redemption against future rail travel.

James Bain, director at, said: “We are experiencing an exciting time in the train travel industry. It is once again becoming the dominant form of transport for business and leisure travel, and customers deserve a booking website that offers value and rewards loyalty.

“At, we know that our customers need to be assured they’ve got the best price for a ticket. That’s why we also provide a ‘price promise’. If customers have bought a train ticket from, but find the same fare at a cheaper price from another website on the same day, the difference in the fares will be refunded as loyalty points.”
