Since people are always talking about booking train tickets here, and since The Trainline is often mentioned by some people as a good place to book, just thought I'd mention my experience today.
Myself and a colleague booked the identical journey.
My tickets £162.00 booked direct on CrossCountry.
His tickets £166.77 consisting of £162 plus £1.50 booking fee plus £3.27 credit card fee.
Now, £4.77 isn't a huge amount in the grand scheme of things but as he and I are both picking our tickets up from a machine, its a pointless spend.
