3% Cashback on Train Ticket including Season Tickets for HSBC Cardholders

Found 5th Jan
If you're an HSBC Visa debit card holder, you can get 3% (near) instant cashback with trainline.com by registering with their offers site.

HSBC have just emailed me confirming I get 3% cashback on my next purchase at trainline.com. I cannot see anything stating this is not valid on season ticket purchases.

WARNING - I have not successfully done this yet as I do not yet need to renew my season ticket, but cannot see any reason why it would not work. Previous cashback offers from HSBC almost instantly appear in my account, in one case before the transaction itself had even gone through (LIDL).

1. Register here...

2. Add you card.

3. Then make the purchase with Trainline

Train line is generally more expensive then national rale
they charge a booking fee unlike train operators themselves and others. The ticket would have to cost over £33 to make up for their higher cost.

How do they compare against national rail?
Avoid the rip off trains...Walk, Swim, Crawl, cycle, skate, take a bus, drive or fly...

I use my Costco American Express to get 2% back on my £950 season ticket, bought at the station ticket office

Worth checking if you can get a replacement ticket at your local station should it stop being accepted by the gates. Happens to me roughly twice a year.
Just letting everyone know, santander has 5% cashback. Maximum of £30 cashback though.
Trainline is not stated as one of the offers on the hsbcuk.visaoffers.eu/ site . I see the offers the works, Mountain warehouse, Giftcloud. but nothing for the trainline?

Can you please shed some light?
Same. I can’t see the deal.

I really don't understand how trainline exists. They probably use the exact same api as national rail to get pricing data from all the train operators. Then they just wack a booking fee on top.

Just use national rail and buy direct.
Use PayPal and no booking fees

National Rail don't sell train tickets. They just direct you to one of the train companies.


When booking a train ticket, the first thing you should do is look on Megatrain, and check the price there, as they have fares not available anywhere else. Megatrain now only seem to do tickets for East Midlands Trains services between London, Leicester, Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield though, and only on a handful of trains a day.

Then check the website of the train company whose trains you'll be using the most on your journey. Sometimes they have special offers or sales on their own tickets. You might also get extras you don't get elsewhere - for example Virgin East Coast give you free wifi if you book through them.

You might also want to look at one of the split ticketing websites to see if using two or more tickets for your journey works out cheaper.

If you can't get cheaper tickets directly from the train company you're using, then look for the best cashback and loyalty offers. I think at the moment Transpennine is best for this - you can get cashback and nectar points.

That's only for tickets for travel the same day, bought through the app. Everything else has a fee, however you pay for it.
