Online travel retailer redspottedhanky.com has introduced a UK train ticket service for mobile phone users. The mobile application, which was developed by m-ticket company Masabi, allows customers to search for and buy train tickets without paying any booking fees. In addition, users will also earn loyalty points from redspottedhanky.com.
The mobile app enables tickets to be collected from most UK stations and can also be used in place of a conventional ticket on some routes. It’s currently available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Nokia smartphones plus most feature phones. A Windows Phone 7 version is planned.
James Bain, Director and co-founder of redspottedhanky.com, said “It is now possible to get the great redspottedhanky.com service on the go where customers can check train times and buy the cheapest possible tickets whilst earning loyalty points using their mobile phone, whether it’s the latest smartphone or a basic everyday handset. We look forward to continuing to work with Masabi to further develop the mobile applications and offer more advanced features, ultimately improving our customers’ experience.”
Customers can text REDSPOT to 86688 in the UK to receive the free application. (Mobile network charges may apply).
