How do I contact Trainline? Do you have a phone hotline?

Do you need some travel or route advice?

We love providing you with the best customer service possible. However we cannot give you individual travel advice or assist you in planning your trip details. We also cannot book tickets on your behalf.

If you have any technical or payment issues, then we will be very happy to help! If you need help with planning your holiday or you're seeking suggestions for what routes to take, please read one of our great partner websites: The Man in Seat 61. We are sure that you will find all of the travel and train advice that you need.

Do you have a phone hotline for emergencies?

No, we currently do not have a phone hotline. However, we are very quick to respond  if you contact us here!

In the case of an emergency or a very last minute situation do not hesitate to contact the relevant rail operator. You can either call them or go directly to the train station to speak to someone at the ticket counter.

We have been advised that certain rail operators have refused to cancel or exchange tickets because they have been booked through us. This is unfortunate and not true at all. If you are told that your tickets cannot be cancelled by anyone but Trainline, please do not hesitate to insist that this is false and that the rail operator is indeed able to cancel the tickets. They are not able to issue refunds directly (you need to contact us to arrange the refund) but they are able to make the cancellation.
