...thetrainline.com The holding Company also owns QJump.com, the only rival. However QJump does not offer the full range of Virgin fares, eg first class upgrades, and does not always offer collection from a fastticket machine at a station, which I find rather convenient You can also get ...

could be so much better......

Advantagesgood for travel planning and you can't get to a station

Disadvantagesunreliable, no effective competition

"I know loads of people have already reviewed thetrainline, but I think this is a good case of changing Consumer expectations - two years ago I would have rated this excellent but I don't think it has kept up with the best This is illustrated by an experience I had yesterday. I don't want to bore you, but the bottom line is that it would have been far quicker visiting a station and queuing in-line for a ticket thetrainline is a joint venture ..." Read review

A green light for thetrainline.com!

Advantageseasy to use and convenient

Disadvantagesextra charges

"...day of travelling, someone recommended thetrainline.com to me so I thought I would give it a go! Before writing this review, I was just scouring some of the very negative reviews written about the trainline previously and I'm wondering if they have completely reviewed their service, as my experience was pretty positive although I do have one or two niggles. First, a little about the site itself. It is apparently the largest independent retailer ..." Read review

Great Web Site but Charge for Credit Cards

Advantages easy to navigate web site

Disadvantages charge for credit card payment

"I have been using thetrainline for quite a while since I work in another city and travel frequently during weekend. But as it introduced charging fees for credit card booking, I switched to virgin. But still most time I check tickets on thetrainline. Generally speaking, apart of credit card charge I think this is a quite good web site for booking train tickets. Even after I switched to virgin, I found it was powered by thetrainline. And I can use ..." Read review

If Only The Trains Were This Quick

AdvantagesNo queuing, good prices, quick service, simple

Disadvantagesyou're going to be using a train!

"...The latter part is where thetrainline.com excels. thetrainline.com is one of those sites that works due to its elegant simplicity. It professes to be nothing more than a website from where you can purchase train tickets; it's as simple as that. There are spin-offs from the site, understandably, that allow you to book UK Hotels or theatre tickets at the sister site seeyoumonday.com, and their online store offers car hire at your destination and ..."

Good habits do pay off

AdvantagesBook from the comfort of your home. Saves time and money.

DisadvantagesNone

"...option at all. The site Thetrainline.com is owned by Virgin trains and it’s the same thing if you book through Virgintrains.co.uk or Trainline.com as you only have to register once and your same account is valid for both sites. The only difference is that on trainline.com you can book for any train company. It’s always better to check out the virgin site first as there is 90% chance that you’ll find a special offer. Few months ..." Read review
