Trainline EU: Train Tickets




    Trainline, previously Captain Train, is the quickest and easiest solution for booking train tickets online in Europe. Since 2011, more than 1.8 million users trust us to book their tickets in France (SNCF, iDTGV, OUIGO, OUIBUS), Germany (Deutsche Bahn, HKX), Italy (Trenitalia, Italo, Thello), Spain (Renfe), the U.K. (Eurostar), Switzerland (Lyria), and Belgium and the Netherlands (Thalys).

    Trainline: the new name for Captain Train

    Back in March 2016, we said hello to Captain Train—our French equivalent—and teamed up with them to build the best online train ticket platform in Europe. Captain Train is now part of the Trainline Group and our team and our mission remain the same: we’re here to make train travel easier and smarter for people in the UK, France and the whole of Europe.

    Too good to be true?

    Like many users you may ask yourself how we make money.

    It is quite simple. Like any other official travel agent (certified by the SNCF or the Deutsche Bahn) we earn a commission for each ticket sold. There is no additional fee for our clients because our prices are aligned with the rail operator’s fares.

    The website is pretty useful for booking train tickets but that's about it. This app is terrible though. I understand that train stations show information about trains, but when you're transferring and you've got 5 minutes to get on, a heads up on the platform would be great. The DB app does this, you should too (and not this dash to make it look like you'll show it, because you never do). Also, actually update when a train is late. I'm currently on a train delayed 20 minutes but your app is telling me I'm fine, I'm not going to mess up my next 2 transfers, except I am, and this app can't even tell me when any alternative trains will be. So yeah, thanks for a terrible app.
