How does Trainline make money?

As our tickets are the exact same price (sometimes even cheaper) as those sold directly by train carriers and we do not sponsor ads on Trainline, you may be wondering how we stay alive. 

Well, our business model is very simple: just like with all travel agencies, the carriers pay us a small commission on each ticket sold :)

That is it. We do not charge any booking fees and no credit card surcharges. We only charge you for the cheapest train tickets available!
