UK Rail E-Ticket Popularity Doubles Over the Last Four Years

REDUCE YOUR TRAVEL COSTS

An increasing number of rail stations are accepting e-Tickets for their passengers in a continued move to improve efficiency and reduce printing across the industry. Towards the end of last year, stations managed by Govia Thameslink Railway installed 710 barcode readers at its ticket gates, resulting in 98 stations introducing the digital service including Gatwick Express, Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink train services.

E-Tickets offer a host of benefits, such as reduced costs and increased sustainability due to lack of printing, time savings thanks to the avoidance of having to collect physical tickets, and peace of mind – there is less likelihood of losing a digital ticket.

According to Rail Advent, the proportion of passengers buying e-Tickets nationally has more than doubled, with an increase from 20% to 49% during the last four years, while the percentage of customers purchasing traditional paper tickets has more than halved.

CT Business Travel can offer UK rail e-Tickets* to clients who book their rail travel through our travel management services, providing them simple and seamless business travel solutions. You can download your train tickets directly to your phone, storing them within your device’s wallet. This can be scanned at the station barrier or by a member of staff.

To find out more about rail travel or for any assistance with your business travel needs, please speak to your dedicated CT Business Travel Team on 01892 673422, or enquire here.

*If e-Ticketing is available on your chosen route, this will be notified at the time of booking.
