Launched in Paris in 2009, Captain Train (now Trainline) is the quick and easy way to buy train tickets throughout France and Europe from your computer or mobile device. We are connected to the reservation systems of rail operators in more than 20 European countries, such as SNCF, Deutsche Bahn, Trenitalia and Eurostar, which allows us to get fares straight from the source and offer tickets at the lowest price. Our team has grown from three to sixty people since 2009. We sell over 5,000 tickets per day to 1.8 million users.
We created Captain Train to make the purchasing of tickets on the Internet a bit less tedious. We therefore place great importance on the simplicity and technical quality of our site and our applications. With us, you’ll never see advertising banners. Everything is done for you so that you can book your train without losing your mind.
Back in March 2016, we said hello to Trainline and teamed up with them to build the best online train ticket platform in Europe. Captain Train is now part of the Trainline Group and our team and our mission remain the same: we’re here to make train travel easier and smarter for people in the UK, France and the whole of Europe.
