About takethetrain.co.uk

We'd like to introduce you to our resident train expert, Ferdinand Frog, the friendly face of takethetrain.co.uk.

A few words from the frog himself...

Welcome to our web site and thank you for taking the time to read all about us!

takethetrain.co.uk is a brand new online rail ticket retailer. We are a friendly bunch, passionate about travel and more importantly passionate about good value. We have been in the travel industry for over a decade now and for a good while we’ve thought that consumers deserve a better deal when it comes to buying rail tickets.

After much deliberation we decided to put our money where our mouth is. We're aiming to provide the best value web site for buying train tickets.

To achieve this aim we are simply sticking to two main principles -

  • Putting the customer before profit
  • Be open, honest and transparent in everything we do

Our first principle means we will not charge you a penny for using this web site. This means no booking fees and no credit card fees.

Our second principle is a commmitment to you! We are a business so of course you understand that we need to make some profit to run the service. We earn a small commission for each train ticket we sell and by keeping our overheads very low, we don't have to charge you to top up our revenue, unlike some of our competitors.

So you can see our principles are already in action and as they're in writing here, we want you to let us know if you don't think we're living up to them.

We hope that you enjoy using this site and save many £'s in the process. You can search for a ticket right now by clicking here.

Bon Voyage!
