Be smarter. Spend less on train tickets with Railsmartr.

National Rail Accredited

Railsmartr is working with the train operators to help you travel safely this summer. Go to our COVID-19 help pages.

1. Travel at quieter times

Off-peak trains are less busy

2. Socially-distanced seat reservations

Where seat reservations are available, they are spaced out and you won't be sitting next to anyone

3. Go contactless

Avoid ticket machines and station queues by getting a digital ticket

4. You must wear a face covering

You must wear a face covering, unless exempt. £100 fine applies.
No extra charges
Why should you pay extra fees just to get your train tickets? We never add any fees - not even for refunds.
Cheaper fares

We’re cheaper than the rest! How do we do it?

We find the cheap through fares that are often on slower journeys. Other journey planners hide these, because they only look for the fastest journeys. We’ll be adding split tickets soon too, to bring you even cheaper fares!

Get your ticket to your mobile, on most routes!

Going to a station to collect your ticket from a ticket machine? That’s so old hat. Get your ticket sent straight to your mobile, on most routes. (You can still go to a ticket machine, if you prefer, of course!)

We work for you, not for the train operators

As an independent retailer of train tickets, we are here to make sure that you get the best deal. And, if there’s an issue when you travel or if you claim delay repay compensation, we will help you get sorted. We’re on your side.
