Frequently asked questions

For more information on the LNER app, view the frequently asked questions below.

How does Deal Finder work?

Deal Finder searches live ticket availability across the next three months on the LNER app and will find the best price available at that point in time according to the criteria used for the Deal Finder search. 

Is Deal Finder available on the website?

Deal Finder is only currently on the LNER app. You must make sure that your LNER app is version 4.19.7 or higher to access these deals.

Will I still be able to access my existing train tickets and booking information in the LNER app?

Yes, once you log into the app you can access your full LNER account, including bookings you have made on the LNER website. Any tickets you have already purchased can be accessed through the new LNER app.

Can I choose to get my train tickets posted to me through the LNER app?

No, we do not support posted tickets from the LNER app. Mobile tickets in the form of eTickets are easier to use, can be replaced if lost, and are easier to change or refund. Where we can give you an eTicket for your journey, we will do this by default. If eTicket is not supported for your journey (e.g. cross London journeys) then we will allow ticket collection at the station.

Can I print my tickets purchased through the LNER app?

If you select eTickets for your journey, then you can print the PDF versions of your tickets if you prefer to have a hard copy. You can access these versions in the My Account area of the LNER app or the LNER website. We also email you a PDF by default if you book eTickets via the app.

What operating systems support the LNER app?
  • Android 7 and later
  • iOS 11 and later

If you have older versions of the app that were supported on earlier versions of iOS or Android, then the app may remain on your device, but you won’t benefit from any app updates for later versions. We recommend updating your operating system and/or device if you want to benefit from LNER app updates.

Can I reserve a bike space through the LNER app?

The app currently does not support bike reservations. However, you can reserve a bike on our website when booking a journey that on LNER trains only. Alternatively, you can reserve a bike space by contacting us on 03457 225 333 Monday to Sunday between the hours of 08:00-22:00 or at a Travel Centre.
