Trainline will provide you with a receipt for proof of payment and/or proof of travel, this is available from our app or website.


This receipt is not a VAT invoice for the total cost of your travel. 

Trainline sells tickets to you on behalf of the Rail and Coach providers and do not charge VAT on your Rail and Coach travel, this is the responsibility of the Rail and Coach providers. 

Where VAT is charged on Rail and Coach travel (usually within the EU), this will either be shown on your ticket or you can obtain an invoice directly from the Rail and Coach provider if you need to recover VAT for your business account. 

Trainline does charge VAT on the booking fees applied, this is shown on your email conformation and the receipt available from the app or website, both can be used as a VAT receipt.
