m-Ticket

Train companies and thetrainline.com are working together to offer flexible mobile tickets, also known as 'm-Tickets.' Simply download one
of the rail travel apps straight to your smartphone, buy your ticket and select ‘m-Ticket’.

You can now buy flexible m-Tickets for travel between over 230 stations (see list below) with new stations and routes being added regularly. 

m-Tickets are easy, fast and convenient.

 

What is an m-Ticket?

An m-Ticket is just like the standard orange rail ticket, but it’s held on your mobile device.

You can buy a ticket, download it to your mobile device and then present to rail staff to show you have a valid ticket for your journey in the same way you would a paper ticket.

What tickets can you get delivered to my mobile device?

You can now buy a range of National Rail tickets to be delivered as a m-Ticket, including Anytime, Off-Peak, Super Off-Peak and Advance.

The fare, validity and terms and conditions of the ticket purchased remain the same as the equivalent paper ticket.

How does an m-Ticket work?

Your m-Ticket is just like a paper ticket and should be shown to staff to prove that you have a valid ticket for your journey.

Just before getting on the train you must activate your ticket. An inactivated ticket is not valid for travel.

Don’t forget to make sure your mobile device is charged when you make your journey.

Where can you get an m-Ticket?

To get an m-Ticket you will need to download one of the free rail travel apps from your app store and purchase a ticket for any service between the participating stations.
