Cancellations or change requests for such bookings must be conducted directly with those third-party providers.

3. How the booking service works

The Booking Service aims to provide You with information on Tickets offered by the Operators and to allow You to book these same Tickets. This information is provided free of charge to You.

3.1. The Customer

You may choose to create a personal account (hereinafter referred to as “the Account”) in order to use the Booking Service but You may also use the Booking Service as a visitor.
Trainline Europe reserves the right to refuse the creation of an Account or access to the Booking Service for any legitimate reason.

When registering Your personal information when Your Account is created, You must ensure that the mandatory information provided is correct and complete and is regularly updated.

Save for the use of the Trainline for Business service, You declare that You use the Booking Service for strictly personal and non-commercial use and only for Your own needs or for another person (natural or legal) in the name and on behalf of whom You have the power to act.

3.2. The Passengers

If You have an Account, You may add as many Passengers to this profile as desired. You are responsible for the respective personal information of each Passenger provided and You must ensure that You have the Passengers’ consents to use this information. Since this information is necessary for the issuing of the Tickets by the Operators, Trainline Europe shall not be held responsible for the issuing of a Ticket containing false information if such information has been provided by You.
Trainline Europe recalls that loyalty and discount cards are generally strictly personal and must therefore be completed for the correct Passengers. Details of the rules can be found in the Operators’ terms and conditions.

3.3.  Description of the booking flow process:

If You have an Account, the booking process for your tickets takes place in a few quick steps:

  1. You will first need to provide the necessary information for Your journey: You can enter your departure and arrival stations, select (or add) the Passengers that will be travelling, and choose your travel dates.
  2. You will then be shown the result of your ticket search, which will display all available departures. From there, You can choose whichever departure suits you best. Depending on the rail operator, You are able to pick Your travel class, indicate Your seating preferences and select additional options (if available), such as additional luggage, a meal on board or a bike space reservation. Once You have done this, You can click on the button” Add to basket” and from there You will either repeat the same process for Your return ticket or be directed to Your basket, in case of a one-way journey. The ticket is then stored in your basket up until the time indicated; this means the price and seats are guaranteed up until the indicated expiration date (more information about Deutsche Bahn and bus tickets in paragraph 3.3).
  3. You can then proceed to payment by clicking on the “Pay” button from Your basket.
  4. After this, You will be able to select Your preferred payment method and enter Your payment details (if required), then accept the terms and conditions of Trainline Europe and of the Operators. You can then finalise Your payment by clicking on “Pay”. Depending on Your exact payment method, You may be required to complete a 3D Secure verification for Your payment and enter a predetermined password or a SMS code sent to You by Your bank.
  5. You will then be shown a confirmation of Your payment being successful and, if applicable, have the option to save Your card to Your account for future use. Once You click on “Ok”, You will be redirected to the ”Tickets” section of Your Account, which details the itinerary of Your journey and also allows You to download Your Ticket (if it is an e-ticket). You will also be able to view any other upcoming journeys or previous ones that have already taken place.

If You are booking Your Tickets without an Account, as a visitor, Your booking will take place in the following way:

  1. You will need to enter all of the necessary details for Your Ticket search: the departure and arrival station, travel dates and provide the details of each passenger (age and if applicable, their loyalty or subscription rail cards).
  2. You will then be shown the result of Your Ticket search, which will display all available departures. You can choose whichever departure suits You best. Depending on the rail operator, You are able to pick Your travel class, indicate Your seating preferences and select additional options (if available), such as additional luggage, meals on board or a bike space
  3. Once You have done this, You can click on the button” Add to basket” and from there You will either repeat the same process for Your return Ticket or in case of a one-way journey, be directed to a new page to enter all of the required information for each passenger. You’ll be able to provide the primary email address for You to receive Your Tickets and booking confirmation, once payment has been made. You can then click on “Book” and You’ll be shown a confirmation and summary of Your booking. Additionally, the Ticket is saved up until the time indicated and after this will expire and be automatically deleted (more information about Deutsche Bahn and bus tickets in paragraph 3.3).
  4. If You wish to proceed with Your reservation, You can continue to payment by clicking on the “Pay” button. A new window will appear, which will allow You to chose Your preferred payment method and enter any further details (if required). You will be asked to accept the terms and conditions of Trainline Europe and of the Operators. You can then finalise Your payment by clicking on “Pay”. Depending on Your exact payment method, You may be required to complete a 3D Secure verification for Your payment and enter a predetermined password or a code sent to You by SMS.
  5. Once Your payment is completed, a confirmation of Your payment being successful will be displayed. Once You click on “Ok”, You will be redirected to the confirmation page of Your booking which details the itinerary of Your journey, and the email address that the confirmation email and Ticket (if applicable) have been sent to.

3.4. Selection of Tickets

Trainline Europe takes the greatest care in the presentation and description of the search results that We display to You. However, in spite of our efforts and since the prices indicated in the search result are provided to us by the Operators, We are unable to guarantee that all of the information in our Booking Service (including timetables, real-time data and fares) will be correct.
In view of the functioning of the Operators’ pricing system process, prices may change at any time and notably between the time they are presented on the search results page and their final selection before payment. As a result, We will inform You of the time until which the fares and seats can be guaranteed after the Tickets have been selected.  Please note that Deutsche Bahn and bus’ prices cannot be guaranteed and that in case of discrepancy between the price shown in Your basket and the actual price of the Ticket at the time of payment, Trainline Europe will inform You of this discrepancy immediately and will cancel the payment procedure, Your bank account will not be debited of the amount of those Tickets and Tickets will not be provided.
Trainline Europe markets the Tickets that the Operators allow it to sell online; other products may be offered but indicated as “unavailable”.

3.5. Payment methods

If You have an Account, You may choose to pay for all or some of the Tickets in Your basket. If You do not have an Account, You have to pay for all of the Tickets in Your basket but You are able to remove every ticket from Your basket easily.

The accepted payment methods are as follows:

The Operators iDTGV and OUIGO process payments themselves and they only accept payment by bank card (Debit Card, Visa and Mastercard) and Apple Pay.

Prices are given in euros, including all taxes.
Before being able to pay, You must confirm acceptance of these Terms and Conditions as well as all of the terms and conditions of the various Operators selling the relevant Tickets.
If payment is made by bank card, Amex BTA or by Voucher, You must click on the “Pay Now” button in order to finalise the order. The total amount to pay is shown in the button. In the case of PayPal and Apple Pay, You must click on “Pay Now with PayPal” or “Pay now with Apple Pay” and follow the instructions given in the window which then open

The payment is fully secured by the TLS 1.0 / 1.1 / 1.2 (SSL) protocols depending on Your browser or mobile device.

The order will only be considered final when the Customer has been sent the order acceptance confirmation by email and after the full price has been paid. Trainline Europe reserves the right to cancel or refuse any Customer orders where there is a dispute relating to the payment of a previous order.

If You decide to pay for Your Ticket using a  credit or debit card which is not linked to a Euro account, You will be responsible for the exchange fees (for example, margins and commissions). Changes made to Your ticket or refunds made may also be affected by these exchange fees.

After making a successful payment, You can choose to securely register and save your credit card information to Your Account by ticking the box provided for this purpose. This enables You to avoid entering your bank details again for future bookings. You can view the list of Your registered cards as well as delete them through Your account preferences at any time.

3.6. Ticket collection

When payment has been made and after the order confirmation, Trainline Europe will provide You with information on how to obtain Your ticket. Trainline Europe undertakes to do its best to provide the Customer with the Tickets as soon as possible following payment, before your train departs and within 48 hours at the latest. In the case of Tickets issued by iDTGV and OUIGO, the Operator itself shall send the Tickets to You by email.
Moreover, if the Tickets have not been provided within the 48-hour period following the order confirmation for any other reason than force majeure or due to the Customer, the sale may be cancelled at Your written request. The amounts paid by You will then be returned within fourteen days at the latest following receipt of the written request informing us of this cancellation.

You are notified at the time of making your purchase about the format in which the selected Ticket will be transmitted to You. There are detailed instructions for printing and use of the ticket that are displayed in the Cart and/or confirmation email for each Ticket purchased. Please follow these instructions carefully. In particular, these are the following formats in use:
