Booking train tickets can be a real nightmare, but not if you get yourself RailEasy
by on December 17, 2010
Something weird happened over the last decade – booking train tickets, an everyday task that used to be incredibly simple, somehow became incredibly difficult, confusing and frustrating. All you wanted to do was to buy the cheapest ticket to get you to (and back from) your destination. Why did that become so hard?
There are probably many valid reasons why this happened, with the privatisation and fragmentation of a once great national industry somewhere near the top of that list. But all that is by the by. If you want to buy a train ticket, then get yourself this new RailEasy app to save yourself time, money and bother.
RailEasy lets you book train tickets securely on your phone, giving you the options to make a new booking, check your existing bookings or get help on anything you don’t understand. When making a booking, pop in the date, time and type of ticket that you want and hit ‘search’ and the app will give you the tickets, times and costs of travel.
Once you are happy with the ticket that you want, simply hit a ‘Buy’ link and then you can securely buy that ticket. Easy. The app then gives you a booking reference which you then insert into a machine at the station so you no longer need to hang around in boring queues.
