Independent online train ticket retailer Raileasy has developed a series of mobile apps, which it says are the first of their kind to enter the rail app market. The free apps, which are available for download on the majority of handset types, covering over 90 per cent of mobiles, enable the user to plan their journey, search for fares, and securely buy tickets, all through the app.
Tickets can be purchased via the app from any location in the UK and internationally, so long as the user has data coverage. The app joins Thetrainline.com app, also launched this week, in enabling travellers to both plan their journey, and buy their ticket from the app.
Raileasy sells a comprehensive range of point-to-point tickets impartially between Train Operating Companies via its website and now, its mobile apps. It currently handles over 1m transactions each year. The Raileasy mobile apps have been created using the company’s APIs, which enable developers to easily include UK rail journey planning and booking in their apps or web sites.
