Thanks to the arrival of Raileasy’s cutting edge range of mobile apps, the world of booking UK rail travel and finding train times for your journey has become infinitely less complicated. Whatever the nature of your train enquiry, whether you’re interested in looking up train times to Edinburgh and destinations around Scotland and travelling with ScotRail, or would like to know about London Midland’s trains to London Euston from Liverpool Lime Street , Raileasy’s app is certain to have the answers to your National Rail enquiries.
Raileasy’s rail planner app enables speedy booking of train travel up to twelve weeks before the date of your journey on National Rail services run by all UK train companies. To name but a few, these companies include East Coast, who operates trains from London King’s Cross to Scotland and the North East; Virgin, whose most popular destinations include London Euston, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow; First Great Western, whose train routes run to Cardiff, Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth from London Paddington; Cross Country, whose network covers most of the UK outside the Southeast of England; East Midlands ,whose train services operate from London St Pancras to Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester and Sheffield and Arriva Trains Wales whose train services link all the main stations in Wales to important transport hubs in England such as Manchester and Birmingham. It is also possible to make bookings for trains to and from all of the smaller stations, for London Overground and Underground travel and major London hubs such as London Waterloo, Liverpool Street , Victoria and Stratford.
Using the app could not be simpler or quicker. All you need to do is enter your preferred train times and dates, passenger numbers and select your departure and destination stations from the drop down menus. The app will then do the hard work for you, rapidly navigating through the complicated and confusing minefield of UK rail fares to find the relevant timetables and the cheapest train tickets that are available for your journey. Once you have selected your fares, you can check that the tickets you have chosen meet your requirements. Although the booking engine searches for the cheapest train ticket by default, if your travel plans are liable to change at the last minute or you would simply like to book more flexible or open fares and compare prices, you can of course search for these too. The app also allows you to look for a train by both train departures and train arrivals.
Designed with usability in mind, all aspects of the booking process on the app are straightforward and your train booking can be completed in a matter of minutes by going through just four easy steps. Once you have successfully booked a train, you will receive a eight character reference number and if you have chosen the option to retrieve your ticket at the station with the card you used to pay, your train ticket will be immediately available for collection from any station with ticket collection facilities, making it the ideal solution for all those situations when you’re on the move, in a hurry and desperately need to beat the queues and chaos at the station. It may not be able to solve the problem of travel disruption and train delays, but it can help to ensure that you won’t miss your connection.
Although the app is an invaluable resource if you’re a regular traveller, even if it’s unlikely that you’ll need to book a train ticket in the near future, the app is handy to keep as a journey planner for checking rail timetables, train routes and finding cheaper train tickets. So next time you have a rail enquiry or you’re considering travel by train be it to Norwich or Newcastle, take a moment to try out the app
