Trainline launches app for business travellers

Trainline has launched business profiles in its app for the first time as part of its ongoing drive to make train travel easier for business travellers.

The new business profile feature will allow train travellers to separate business and leisure travel accounts with just one tap.

By creating a business profile in the app, business travellers can bill business trips to a corporate account or company credit card and ensure digital receipts are sent direct to a work email.

The Trainline app has a host of features designed to make train travel easy including access to mobile tickets to avoid station queues, live journey updates and one click refunds if things don’t go quite to plan.

In addition, a new SME web portal is launching for employers who can set up an account, invite employees and manage all business travel in one place.

Sophie Krishnan, general manager Business and ancillary at Trainline said: “Trainline has been continuously investing in its app over the last couple of years.

“It’s now a terrific product in the hands of travellers.

“We know a third of our leisure customers are using our App for business travel, so making an in-app business profile available to users was the next logical step.

“Combined with Trainline’s new web portal for business, it should make the lives of business travellers and bookers a lot easier.”

The new Trainline tool is available now.
