thetrainline Business Accounts

In addition to UK train ticket sales we also pay £15 commission on new Business Accounts.

A new Business Account is defined as any organisation referred by a publisher, that fully completes the registration process on and which has not previously held a business account with thetrainline.

A one-off £15.00 acquisition fee will become payable to the referring publisher for each new fully registered Business Account which spends over £100 on train tickets within 60 days from the date of registration of such new Business Account (please note that this extended 60 day period allows thetrainline to be fair to Publishers by rewarding Publishers for new Business Accounts that may not transact immediately).
