TrainPal is an app designed to make booking train travel as simple and cheap as possible.
“At TrainPal, we’re driven by saving you money on your trip. With our smart search engine, the app recommends you the cheapest available fare. To help keep our tickets even cheaper, TrainPal does not charge any booking or credit card fees. Go further with the cheapest fare. Go further with TrainPal!”
I signed up over the weekend, so don’t have a huge amount of personal experience with the app yet, but it seems intuitive and easy to use – like most similar apps. The reason TrainPal caught my attention was because it is currently offering a range of different discounts that can save you money next time you need to book a train.
How to save up to £15 on train bookings
First things first, download the android version of the TrainPal app here, or the Apple version here. When you’re signing up, add the code 475c283b in the “Promo/invite code” box and you’ll receive £5 off your first booking of £15 or more.
Next, head to the main booking page and click on the image at the top that says “LIMITED £300000 VOUCHERS”.
Click “GO” and you should then see that 3 more discounts have been added to the promotions page of your account:
- £2 off a spend of £10+
- £3 off a spend of £15+
- £5 off a spend of £20+
When you make a booking, you can then select which discount code you want to apply to it – although it seems to automatically add the highest value one anyway.
[WARNING: It’s been flagged in the comments that TrainPal might not always have access to the cheapest fares on all routes (Grand Central in particular was mentioned), so it’s worth doing a quick comparison with your usual booking site to ensure you really are getting a genuinely good deal.]
The discounts seem to work for any UK train booking and can be stacked with railcard discounts, so hopefully lots of readers can benefit!
