If heading north from London up East coast mainline use the East Coast website, they don’t charge a booking fee either. They also have a handy grid type tool that lets you see the cheapest fares for your timeframe, just booked return tickets to Edinburgh from Newcastle for me and the missus for £52. It lets you book other operators than just East Coast as well.Posted 5 years agoepicsteveMember
We travel between London and Edinburgh a lot and generally use the East Coast site. What’s odd though is that there have been several occasions where seat reservations couldn’t be made on the preferred train via East Coast but could on thetrainline – despite it being for an East Coast train.Posted 5 years agonjee20Subscriber
East Cost FTW. Book all my train travel through their site, irrespective of TOC (rarely actually using East Coast). No fees and their reward scheme is good, although I now need to spend the 3000 or so points I’ve accumulated 😕 . No idea why anyone would use the Trainline frankly!Posted 5 years agodoctorgnashoidzMember
However the flip side is their refund process is 1 click in my account if you haven’t already collected your tickets, very easy. It is subject to a fee and the advance fares are not refundable. However, you can still refund and re-book an advance journey to something else which could mean you still travel cheaper than a walk on fare even after the fee. handy to know.Posted 5 years agomartinhutchMember
Also, try this:
before booking any return tickets. I was staggered at how much I saved on a couple of long journeys.Posted 5 years ago
