Selling used phones can result in access to 'the best of train booking'
6 December 2010 — 6:57 PM
People who sell their used phones and put the cash towards one of the latest smartphones will find they are in a position to enjoy the best way to book train tickets.
Flora Graham, reviewing the Trainline app for CNET UK, explains it saves the hassle of finding a computer or, even worse, visiting a train station in order to secure a permit to travel.
The tool is both free to download and there is no charge for using a debit card to book tickets.
Ms Graham notes it "is well worth having just for planning journeys, especially since the National Rail app is so expensive. But the ability to buy a ticket straight from the app makes it even better."
There is even technology in place within the feature that directs people straight to the relevant train company when they request information.
The Trainline app works by sending a unique reservation code to mobiles when a journey is confirmed, which can then be exchanged for tickets at a station.
