You can make your payment using the fowing types of payment card:
If you have entered your card details in our system and have any queries about your booking, please contact the customer service team.
All payment cards used when booking tickets must have a UK registered billing address. At the moment, we are unable to process payments from non-UK-registered cards.
Please note that emails are an insecure form of communication. In the interests of payment card security, customers should not include any payment card details in email correspondence to MyTrainTicket.
*Please note that we apply a credit/charge card fee of 2.95% (that is 2.95p for every £1 spent). There is no card fee when paying with debit cards, including Visa Electron and Maestro. A booking fee of £1.00 applies to all transactions unless otherwise stated.
Advance tickets cannot normally be refunded but can be amended. An amendment involves re-booking your new journey with MyTrainTicket, before the departure of the first reserved train printed on your original ticket. You can then apply for a refund of your original tickets. The re-booking and the amount of refund are subject to the conditions explained below. Please note that, subject to availability, Advance tickets are generally available for purchase until 18:00 on the day before travel. It is not possible to amend Advance tickets on board the train. It is not possible to amend a ticket after the departure time of the reserved train (the time printed on your reservation coupon) - a new ticket must be purchased and no refund will be given for your original ticket.
To amend an Advance ticket, the origin, destination, train operator and route of the new journey must remain the same. You can change the date and time, the class of travel and your use of railcard.
You will also be liable to pay the difference between the price paid and the price of the new journey. If your new journey is cheaper than the original journey, you will not be eligible for a refund of the difference. The Train Operating Companies apply an Advance amendment fee of £10 per ticket for changes made to your journey. There will also be an administration charge of £10 for the overall booking. When you have booked your qualifying replacement tickets, you can the apply for a refund of your original tickets, but you must provide details of the replacement booking in your refund application, see how can I apply for a refund of my ticket?
For further information about Advance tickets, see Advance ticket terms and conditions.
Please also read the section about cancelled services.
For further advice about how to amend your journey, contact our dedicated customer service team. See the contact us section for further information.
If you wish to amend the date of your single rail ticket (or outward travel date for a return ticket), you will need to buy a new ticket and apply for a refund on your existing ticket. There will also be a £10 administration fee per booking for changes made to your journey.

Even if your train was scheduled to run at the time you made your booking, subsequent disruption to services can occur, so it is always advisable to check your planned journey with the Train Operating Company before setting out.
If a Train Operating Company cancels a service you wish to take or on which you have a reservation, you should be able to take the next available service but are advised to contact an appropriate member of staff at the station. If you have not yet left for the station, please contact the Train Operating Company whose service has been cancelled and ask them to confirm the alternative arrangements that they have made to accommodate you on another train.
If, as a result of the cancellation, you choose not to travel, you will be eligible for a refund (for any type of ticket that you bought) through MyTrainTicket and no administration fee will be charged. Please refer to the refunds section.

Anytime and Off-peak train tickets may be eligible for a refund. If you decide not to use your ticket to make all or part of your intended journey, then you can apply for a refund.
Advance tickets are non-refundable, unless the service was subject to cancellation by the Train Operating Company. You can amend an Advance ticket by buying a qualifying replacement ticket, which then allows you to apply for a refund of your original ticket - see amendments. If you have already booked your qualifying replacement tickets, please see how do I apply for a refund?
You can apply for a refund by returning your unused ticket(s) within 28 days of the ticket expiry date - see below for more details.
Self-service ticket machine tickets must be collected from the machine and returned with the refund application.
Please note that we will only accept refund applications for tickets bought from MyTrainTicket.
If a Train Operating Company (TOC) has cancelled the service you have booked and you choose not to travel, MyTrainTicket will refund the cost of your ticket, once we have received your unused tickets and verified with the TOC that the service was cancelled. There will be no admin charges but please note that booking charges (90p), postal and credit card charges (if they have been applied) are not refundable.
If you would like to apply for a refund of your ticket please print and complete this form, giving your MyTrainTicket booking reference number, the circumstances of your refund application (including any re-booking details) and a contact telephone number - and please remember to enclose your unused tickets. For refunds based on the re-booking of qualifying replacements for Advance tickets, please ensure that you provide clear details of your replacement booking when you return your original tickets for a refund, otherwise we will not be able to process your refund.
If you no longer have the original payment card that you used to book tickets, please make this clear on your refund form but do not include details of your replacement card. We will contact you by telephone when we process the refund and take your new card details at that time. This helps to keep your personal and financial information secure as there is no written record of your card details.
Please note that eligible refunds take up to six weeks to be processed. You will normally be required to pay a MyTrainTicket administration fee of £10 for the refund of part or all of your booking. Refunds based on Advance ticket amendments are charged differently - see amendments.
The refund amount will normally take into account any use you have made of the ticket and in some circumstances, no refund will be paid.

Please note that tickets bought from MyTrainTicket must be returned to MyTrainTicket for a refund. Customers should not apply for MyTrainTicket refunds at stations. In cases where our tickets are mistakenly accepted for refund by station staff, they have to be forwarded to MyTrainTicket offices and this can lead to significant delays. If your refund application is received by MyTrainTicket after the expiry of your tickets, it will not be possible to process your refund.
We will notify you by email within six weeks of receipt of your refund application to confirm whether your refund application has been approved by the central authority, or to indicate if there has been a delay. Once we have processed the repayment onto your card, it can take up to 5 days to appear on your account.
If you have any questions, please contact our dedicated customer service team.
Like Train Operating Companies (TOCs), MyTrainTicket depends upon the National Reservation System for its seat reservations. Although we do pass on any seat preferences that you specify to the TOC, seat allocations are subject to availability and we cannot guarantee that your preferences can be met.
If you wish to amend your train tickets after booking, you will need to contact customer service.
