Our enquiry and booking service (the "Booking Service") is offered as a service to you, the customer, by us, Trainline.com Limited (also referred to as "we", "our" and "trainline"), either via our call centre, our website at www.buytickets.crosscountrytrains.co.uk or m.buytickets.crosscountrytrains.co.uk (the "Website"), via our mobile application (the "Mobile Application"), via any third party channels, or any version thereof.

Supply of train tickets

These Terms and Conditions (which incorporate our Privacy Policy and Usage Policy) set out the terms of our contract with you in relation to our supply of any ticket that you purchase using the Booking Service. If you do not agree with these terms, you must not use the Booking Service.

Your train journey

The train operating companies with whom you book tickets through this Booking Service are responsible to you in respect of the provision of the train journey you have booked. All bookings made through the Booking Service are subject to the National Rail Conditions of Travel (explained below) and any specific restrictions imposed by the relevant train operating companies which vary by ticket type.

trainline is therefore not responsible for any delays, cancellations, or other disruptions to train services and we do not set any of the terms and conditions, including eligibility for refunds, of the various ticket types.

Third party services

You can buy third party products and services, other than train tickets via the Booking Service. When you make such a booking via the Booking Service, and your preferred product or service is available, the contract for such third party services (for example, travel insurance or hotel bookings) will be between the relevant supplier and you. We are not a party to any such contractual relationship and you should read the terms and conditions applicable to such third party services carefully. Each third party product and service has its own price independent of any other products or services booked at the same time. We do not sell, organise, or arrange any packages.

You further promise that you will only use the travel services reservations facilities of the Booking Service to make reservations or purchases for yourself or for another person on whose behalf you are legally entitled to act.

By default this Booking Service provides details of trains and fares which represent the fastest published journey times on the date and at the times selected. In some cases there may be cheaper fares available on other operators' routes or at off-peak times, in which case we provide a link to search for these. We quote prices for, and are able to sell the vast majority of point-to-point train tickets. We shall not be obliged to sell tickets to or reserve a seat for, a person or persons who we have reason to believe may be intending to use it, or the proposed method of payment, fraudulently.

You acknowledge that you will be financially responsible for any bookings which are made through the Booking Service using your account details and for all reasonable and foreseeable losses which we suffer as a result of your breach of these terms or your negligence when using the Booking Service (including where you deliberately or negligently let others use your account).

You agree to use the Website and Mobile Application only for lawful purposes, and in a way that does not infringe the rights of, restrict or inhibit anyone else's use of the Booking Service. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any information, products or services obtained from this Website or Mobile Application.

If you register an account with us, your account is meant for your individual use only. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account details, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account (including where your account is used by another person), unless these activities arise due to our negligence or breach of these terms by us.

We reserve the right to restrict or block access to the Booking Service. By proceeding with a purchase via the Booking Service, you represent that you are not currently subject to any economic, financial, territorial or sectoral sanctions, trade embargoes, individual asset freezes, or listed on any sanctions-related list of designated or blocked persons imposed, administered or enforced from time to time by the European Union and implemented by its Member States, the United Nations Security Council, Her Majesty's Treasury of the United Kingdom, the U.S. government, including those administered by the U.S. Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control, or any other relevant authorities with jurisdiction over you or trainline from time to time that would prohibit you from using the Booking Service. You further represent that you are not purchasing any tickets via the Booking Service on behalf of, or for the benefit of, any person or entity listed on any sanctions-related list of designated or blocked persons or any person resident in, or entity organised under the laws of, a country or territory that is the subject of comprehensive sanctions.

1.4. National Rail Conditions of Travel

The National Rail Conditions of Travel (as updated from time to time) sets out the minimum level of service you are entitled to expect in relation to your train journey. They also set out your rights and responsibilities in respect of any train journeys made on the UK railway network, including the liability of the train companies in respect of loss caused by the delay and/or cancellation of any train, by any missed connection or by the closure of the railway as well as in respect of loss or damage to, and delay in the delivery of luggage and its contents. View the National Rail Conditions of Travel. Where the rights set out in the National Rail Conditions of Travel are extended or restricted by the train operating companies with whom you may book tickets through this Booking Service, details of these extensions or restrictions will be provided to you with your journey summary prior to purchase.

The National Rail Conditions of Travel entitle Customers to the same levels of compensation or refund entitlements regardless of where they purchase their ticket.

1.5. Fees and charges

There may be certain fees and charges payable on top of the ticket price in respect of purchases made via the Booking Service. If applicable, these will be identified during the booking process. Some of these fees are levied by the relevant train operating company which requires us to pass them on to you, the customer.

You will be responsible for all charges and taxes payable as a result of your use of this Booking Service, including any cost of accessing the Booking Service (for example, internet access charges or mobile data charges).

1.6. Issue of tickets

Some tickets have limited availability. Although we check availability before quoting the fares, we cannot guarantee the availability of such tickets until you confirm the details of your journey immediately prior to payment. However, we do not charge your credit card until your order has been processed. We take all reasonable measures to ensure that the times and fares quoted on our Booking Service are correct. However, despite our efforts, we cannot guarantee that all of the information on our Booking Service (including times and fares) is correct, as our source data is provided from a third party rail information provider. Where we become aware of an error, we will take reasonable measures to rectify it. If you have purchased tickets which are subject to an error, we will refund these in full.

When we have confirmed your booking by email to your registered email address, we will fulfil your tickets to you using the fulfilment method you selected when you made your booking. While we endeavour to have tickets delivered in accordance with timescales supplied by our delivery agents, we cannot be responsible for any guaranteed delivery times.

Please check your tickets when you receive them. If you believe that the tickets we have sent you do not meet the information you provided at the time of booking through our Booking Service, please contact us. You must ensure that you are in possession of the tickets booked before you board the train. If you cannot produce a valid ticket for the class of accommodation and service that you are using, you will have to pay the appropriate fare on the train and a penalty fare may also be payable. We, the train operating company and the ticket inspector reserve the right to refuse to accept your ticket to the extent that it is unsatisfactorily displayed or to the extent that we or they have reason to suspect that a fraudulent use of booking confirmation, transfer to a different person, or other abuse or reproductions, copies or counterfeits of any ticket are in circulation.

When London International CIV tickets (for use in connection with a Continental or Eurostar ticket) ("CIV tickets") are purchased, they must be accompanied by a valid international travel ticket which must be presented for inspection on the domestic journey along with the CIV ticket. We will not be responsible for any extra costs charged to you by the train operating company where you are unable to provide evidence of a valid international travel ticket accompanied by the CIV ticket when requested by the train operating company staff.

1.7. Getting your tickets

We offer a range of methods to get your tickets. The particular options offered for your booking may differ depending on various factors, including ticket type, train operator, method of purchase and whether or not there is sufficient time to reliably post your tickets.

Normal post: We will dispatch tickets by normal post to the address you specify during the delivery process. You should ensure that the address provided is correct.

Next day delivery: We will dispatch tickets by Royal Mail Special Delivery to the address you specify during the delivery process. You should ensure that the address provided is correct. You will need to sign for the tickets upon delivery. Please note that due to Royal Mail restrictions it may take longer to deliver to remote locations. Please click here for more information on Royal Mail delivery times to remote locations.

International post: We will dispatch tickets by International Signed For (TM) post to the address you specify during the delivery process. You should ensure that the address provided is correct. You will need to sign for the tickets upon delivery.

Collecting tickets at the station: For many bookings we allow you to collect tickets from a range of stations. You must allow sufficient time to collect your tickets before boarding the train. You must have your ticket collection reference, and (unless stated otherwise) the credit/debit card used to make the purchase as identification. You should note any special collection instructions given during the booking process, for example the station opening hours.

If you are unable to collect your tickets (for example due to the ticket machine(s) being out of service) then you should contact the station staff for further assistance. If there are no staff at the station, you should board your booked train, and make yourself known to the on-train staff at the earliest possible opportunity.

Print Your Own (PYO): For some bookings we allow you to print your own ticket ("PYO").

You must ensure that you print the PYO ticket clearly on A4 paper before you travel and carry the PYO ticket with you when you travel. PYO tickets that have not been printed are not valid for travel. PYO tickets presented on the screen of your device are not valid for travel.

PYO tickets denote passenger names and passengers must carry one of the following types of ID (matching the name printed on the tickets) when travelling in order to be valid:

  • Credit or Debit card
  • National Railcard
  • Passport
  • Driving Licence

PYO Tickets are non-transferable and you must ensure that no one else is able to obtain and/or print a copy of your ticket.

Some train operating companies apply additional restrictions to the use of PYO tickets - you must note any additional restrictions notified during the booking process.

Mobile tickets: For some bookings we allow you to travel with paperless tickets ("Mobile tickets") delivered to the Mobile Application installed on a mobile phone, tablet or similar device ("Mobile Device"). Mobile tickets are not available on all Mobile Device operating systems.

When booking such tickets via the Website or call centre, you must check that your Mobile Device is compatible with our tickets by following the instructions provided before purchase and that you have an up to date version of the Mobile Application.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you carry your Mobile Device on the relevant journey and that your Mobile Device is charged, functional, displaying the correct date and time and that you are able to display the ticket on your Mobile Device for inspection and scanning when you travel. Mobile tickets must be activated from within the Mobile Application before boarding the train in order to validate the Mobile ticket. The Mobile Device must be capable of running the Mobile Application and clearly presenting the Mobile ticket in a legible manner.

Due to the wide variety of Mobile Devices and networks we are unable to offer technical support or assistance. You may incur data usage charges from your mobile network provider for downloading a ticket. You should check with your network provider as to what charges may apply.

If tickets have been booked for more than one passenger, all passengers should travel together.

The ticket must be stored on your Mobile Device until the date and time of travel and such safekeeping shall be your responsibility. Mobile Tickets are non-transferable.

By purchasing an Mobile Ticket, you agree to cooperate with the train inspector and let him/her clearly view and scan the ticket on your Mobile Device and you acknowledge that you may be requested to hand over your Mobile Device voluntarily for inspection and scanning. If you do not produce your ticket or hand over your Mobile Device upon request by the train inspector, the train inspector shall be entitled to consider that you are travelling without a ticket.

Some train operating companies apply additional restrictions to the use of Mobile Tickets - you must note any additional restrictions notified during the booking process.

etickets: For some bookings we will allow you to use an eticket. Where you select an eticket we will email you your tickets and you will have the option to use the eticket in one or more of the following ways:

  1. Open the PDF attachment and show the ticket on your Mobile Device. If you are using this option then you must ensure that your Mobile Device can receive email and display a PDF attachment prior to purchase. It is your responsibility to ensure that you carry your Mobile Device on the relevant journey and that your Mobile Device is charged, functional and that you are able to display the ticket on your Mobile Device for inspection when you travel. You may incur data usage charges from your mobile network provider for downloading a ticket. You should check with your network provider as to what charges may apply. The ticket must be stored on your Mobile Device until the date and time of travel and such safekeeping shall be your responsibility. You agree to cooperate with the train inspector and let him/her clearly view and scan the ticket on your Mobile Device and you acknowledge that you may be requested to hand over your Mobile Device voluntarily for inspection and scanning. If you do not produce your ticket or hand over your Mobile Device upon request by the train inspector, the train inspector shall be entitled to consider that you are travelling without a ticket.
  2. Print the eticket. If you are using this option then the terms relating to PYO tickets set out above will apply to your use of the eticket, save that ID is not required for etickets.
  3. Download the eticket on the Mobile Application. If you are using this option then the terms relating to Mobile tickets set out above will apply to your use of the eticket.
  4. Download the eticket into your Apple Wallet if you're using an Apple Wallet enabled Apple device, and show the ticket on your Apple Wallet enabled Apple device. To do this is simple: whilst you are on your Apple Wallet enabled Apple device you must access and open the email that we send you with your tickets, and click on the live link to Apple Wallet. If you are using this option the terms relating to the first type of eticket listed above ('Open the PDF attachment and show the ticket on your Mobile Device') will apply, except that there is no need to present a PDF ticket for inspection if you have downloaded the eticket into your Apple Wallet; instead you should display the ticket using Apple Wallet.

You must ensure that you present your eticket for inspection and scanning in one of the ways described above.

An eticket can only be used by one customer for one valid journey. It is a criminal offence to amend and/or reproduce an eticket for fraudulent use. Where more than one customer presents the same eticket for travel, both may be deemed invalid for travel. You shall have full liability for any fraudulent use of your eticket. Trainline shall have no liability for any fraudulent use of etickets.

2.2. Active Collection of information

Some parts of the Booking Service require you to actively submit information in order for you to benefit from specific features, or make ticket bookings. Some of this information may be personal (namely, information that can identify you, such as your name, address or phone number). We only collect such information when you choose to supply it to us. You confirm that you will only enter information about yourself and that such information is true.

2.3. Passive Collection of Information

We may collect and process anonymous information about your use of the Booking Service, such as some of the pages you visit and some of the searches you perform. Such information is used by us to help us improve the contents of the site and to compile, for internal market research purposes, aggregate statistics about individuals using it. This kind of anonymous information can be obtained by our use of "cookies" as well as other means. Please see our "Cookies" section below for more information on our use of cookies.

We may also share anonymous information about your use of the Booking Service with third parties for analytical purposes.

2.4. Cookies

Our Booking Service uses cookies. A "cookie" is a small piece of information that is stored within your browser and allows us to identify that requests to our Booking Service originate from your computer, and sometimes provide additional information such as your recent searches on our Booking Service. If you would like to find out more general information about cookies: what they are for, and how to manage them, then you might want to read Googles explanation in their "Good to Know" campaign, written in partnership with the Citizens Advice Bureau; or alternatively visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

We use the following cookies on our Booking Service:

Systems cookies: These cookies are created each time you visit our Booking Service and are automatically deleted when you leave our Booking Service and close your web browser. They ensure that the Booking Service works correctly. They also make sure that we remember the fact you are logged in once you log in, and remember the selections that you make as you use the Booking Service. The Booking Service will not work properly without these cookies.

Identification cookies: These cookies help us remember who you are when you come back and visit our Booking Service and allow you to access your favourite journeys before you log in. These cookies are retained for up to two years after you visit our Booking Service.

Web analytics cookies/Marketing effectiveness cookies: These cookies allow us to understand general customer behaviour on our Booking Service; such as which bits of our Booking Service customer’s use, where they exit the Booking Service and, if anything goes wrong, where it happens; helping us to make our Booking Service better. We also track how customers found our Booking Service, for example which search engine was used or which online adverts were clicked on before visiting our Booking Service, helping us understand our marketing effectiveness. Data is anonymised and aggregated so we can monitor trends and count visitors rather than tracking individual customers. They have no impact on what you see on the Booking Service and do not store or track any of your personal data.

These cookies are an important part of providing you with an effective service. By using our Booking Service you consent to us creating and retrieving these cookies. By using our Booking Service you agree that you are aware of and understand that these cookies are used on our Booking Service and the purposes for which they are used.

Most web browsers allow you to configure your browser settings to refuse all or some cookies. How you do this will depend on the web browser you use. However, if you use your browser setting to block all or some cookies it will result in our Booking Service not operating correctly.

2.5. Use of Information collected

Your personal information submitted to us is used for operational purposes, for example, producing tickets, processing payments or confirming orders, alerting you about your booked journeys, constantly improving and adding to the tools and features that we provide to you on our Website and Mobile Application, and to personalise your shopping experience by using your purchases and browsing activity to make recommendations to you about products and services that we think may be of interest to you.

We and/or our authorised third parties (including the Rail Delivery Group ("RDG")) may also use your personal information: (a) for internal market research and analysis purposes; and (b) to carry out survey related activities with you.

If you contact us we may be able to see information about your recent activity on our Website - such as your recent searches, recent error messages shown and/or your recent purchases. This enables us to provide you with an efficient service, and reduce the need for you to repeat information to us that you have already input into the Website.

You may be able to use our Booking Service without logging in or registering as a new user. Where you are not a registered user of our Booking Service and you use our Booking Service without registering as a new user and/or you are a visitor to our Website, your data will be used in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

2.6. Sharing of Information

We may share your personal information with third parties (including third parties outside of the EU) for the purpose of (a) processing a booking reservation, hotel or travel insurance product or otherwise in relation to fulfilling a booking you have made via the Booking Service; (b) for marketing services (where you have consented to receive such marketing services); (c) for processing payment (including fraud screening); (d) advertising, including targeted advertising, of our products and services on other sites; and (e) for undertaking any other permitted use of your personal information on our behalf.

Season ticket holders may be contacted for survey and research purposes about the journeys you make with your season ticket.

We may transfer and/or share your personal information with Cross Country Trains Ltd and its third party service providers. Cross Country Trains Ltd and its third party service providers may further use your personal information (a) for analysis and market research related services; (b) to carry out survey related activities with you; and (c) for the purpose of alerting you about your booked journeys; and (d) to contact you about new features, services, products and special offers ("Marketing Information") in line with any consent that you have provided. If you do not wish to receive Marketing Information, you may choose not to do so by clicking where indicated on the registration page. If you initially wish to receive such material but you change your mind later, you may tell us by using the "update your personal details" page or sending us an email to sales.support.crosscountry@trainsfares.co.uk.

For some services (where you are already a loyalty scheme participant) you may be able to earn loyalty points by providing your loyalty scheme registered email address or membership number. Where you provide us with your loyalty scheme registered email address or membership number then you authorise us to provide the loyalty scheme operator and/or the loyalty scheme operator's third party service providers with this information as well as details regarding your transaction(s). The loyalty scheme operator's terms relating to the loyalty scheme will apply, however, there may be certain restrictions on the tickets and routes that are eligible for loyalty points. The loyalty scheme operator's terms, conditions and privacy policy will apply to their use of that data.

2.7. Use of location data

Information about your location or approximate location may be used by our Booking Service. We obtain and use this information in two main ways:

Internet traffic information, such as your IP address: This information is provided automatically as you use our Booking Service and can allow us to infer your approximate location - for example your city or county, and country. We use this information:

  • for analysis purposes to understand the distribution of our customers;
  • to tailor messages or advertisements shown on our website - for example if we identify that you are likely to be located in Manchester, we may show you promotions relating to journeys starting in Manchester.

Location information provided by your browser or device: Many web browsers, particularly on mobile phones and tablet devices, are able to accurate report your location, for example using GPS technology. The same is true for apps on mobile phones and tablets. These browsers and devices normally ask your permission before sharing your location with a website or app, and you can usually disable the feature altogether in the device settings. We use this information for features that need to know your location - for example if you select "nearest station" or "next train home" and for other search functionality features.

2.8. Security

We take the security of your data very seriously. We employ physical, electronic and administrative security measures to protect the information that we collect about you from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the data protection laws.

2.9. Links to third party Internet sites

The Website and Mobile Application may contain links to other sites and sources of information. By clicking on these, you will leave the Website or Mobile Application (as appropriate) and this Privacy Policy will not apply to your use of any other sites.

2.10. Changes to this Privacy Policy

There may be changes in how we use your data. All such changes will be notified to you by updating this Privacy Policy.

2.11. Access to Personal Information

You are entitled to see the personal information we hold about you and may obtain these details by writing to us at: CrossCountry Trains, c/o Trainline.com Limited, PO Box 23972, Edinburgh, EH3 5DA. We are entitled by law to charge an administrative fee to meet our costs in providing you with such details and we may require proof of your identity before we supply the information to you.

2.12. Deactivating your Account

Upon request from you (by writing to us at: CrossCountry Trains, c/o Trainline.com Limited, PO Box 23972, Edinburgh, EH3 5DA) we will deactivate your account and render your personal information unusable as soon as reasonably possible, in accordance with applicable law.

You agree that we may take the Booking Service offline where we consider that this is necessary for routine or emergency maintenance without liability to you.

To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all representations and warranties (whether express or implied by law), including the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, security and accuracy. We do not guarantee the timeliness, completeness or performance of the Website, Mobile Application or Booking Service or any of the content.

Nothing in these terms limits our liability for death or personal injury directly caused by us.

All third party suppliers of products, services or content which we link to from the Website or Mobile Application, or within the Booking Service, (which may include our selected partners such as providers of hotels, travel insurance companies and car hire companies) are independent entities and we are not responsible or liable for any wrongful act or omission on their part or for any of the content of their websites, including but not limited to any product liability claims. You should read the terms and conditions of any third party suppliers carefully.

Functionality may differ between the different Booking Service channels and may also differ depending upon the device or customer using our Booking Service channels.

3.5. Our Mobile Application

Your use of the Mobile Application

We allow you the right to download, install and use the Mobile Application on your mobile handset to access the Booking Service in accordance with these terms and conditions.

You may not use the Mobile Application for any purpose other than to access the Booking Service. You do not and will not own the Mobile Application or any information that is provided to you through it or the Booking Service, but you may use these things in accordance with these terms and conditions.

The Mobile Application is provided to you free of charge and on an ‘as is' basis. We have tried to make sure that it will work on each compatible Mobile Device, however, we do not promise that the Mobile Application will be suitable for your needs, or that it will work accurately or in a particular way. All implied promises or warranties related to the mobile application, and access to the booking service through it, are excluded.

Data charges and access

The Mobile Application requires a correctly configured and functional internet data connection, both for the initial installation, and for use.

Data charges may be charged to you by your network provider depending on your individual tariff. You are responsible for any such costs. Note that if you are using the Mobile Application on an overseas network, the cost of data usage may be considerably higher than when at home.

We are unable to provide any warranties as to the levels of connectivity you will receive via your Mobile Device. This may depend upon your tariff, your network provider or your corporate policy if you have a work-issued handset. We will not accept any responsibility for any connectivity issues you may experience.

Please contact your network provider or visit their website if you require assistance configuring a data connection for your Mobile Device.

Support & Communications

While we have tried to get a broad coverage of Mobile Devices, our Mobile Application will not work on all Mobile Devices. Please refer to our Website for details of the Mobile Devices which are able to download our Mobile Application. Download and operation success may depend on Mobile Device settings.

If you have any queries or problems with the Mobile Application, please look at our FAQs for answers to the most common questions we receive from users. If the FAQs do not assist, please contact us at: sales.support.crosscountry@trainsfares.co.uk or 0371 244 2389. (Please do not contact any distributor of the Mobile Application with a support request as they will not be able to assist you.)

We may send communications to you through the Mobile Application. These communications may include marketing material, technical and support information, and information on updates or changes. By using the Mobile Application, you agree to us providing you with such communications.

Please note that we may cease to operate and support the Mobile Application, or a particular version of it, at any time. If this happens, you will be unable to access the Booking Services through the Mobile Application (or the relevant version of it) and you may be unable to download or install fresh copies of the Mobile Application. Where we think that it is reasonable to do so, we also reserve the right to either require you to delete the Mobile Application, or to remotely deactivate the Mobile Application from your Mobile Device.

Updates & Availability

From time to time, we may issue updates to the Mobile Application, in which case you may not be able to continue use of the version of the Mobile Application installed on your Mobile Device without downloading the relevant update. If we issue an update of the Mobile Application without disabling our earlier version installed on your Mobile Device, we nonetheless recommend that you download and install all updates issued. We cannot accept any liability for errors which become apparent in old versions of the Mobile Application.

We are able to suspend access to the Booking Service through the Mobile Application. We can do this for any reason, but will usually only do so when carrying out maintenance on the Mobile Application or the systems supporting it.

Security

You can use your Mobile Application to store details of your bookings, favourite journeys and payment card details. You should ensure that your Mobile Device is protected by a suitable PIN number or password so that if lost/stolen your stored details cannot be used or accessed.

Liability

Your mobile telephone supplier and manufacturer, airtime service providers (which for clarity includes telecommunications carriers) and any other retailer acting through an online store portal through which the Mobile Application is distributed, shall not be liable to you in any manner whatsoever in relation to Mobile Applications made available through their channel partners and associated service providers, including (without limitation) in relation to the sale, distribution or use thereof, or the performance or non-performance of the Mobile Application. Your mobile telephone manufacturer, airtime service providers and any such retailer shall be third party beneficiaries of these terms and conditions with you for the purposes of this provision.
