Correct. It's pointless. I suggest either:- - FSR - no requirement to register to use it (only requires registration when ready to purchase), all the 'benefits' of Thetrainline but none of the fees. - NXEC - no requirement to register as above, but different engine to thetrainline which makes it easier to see cheapest fares. Also allows you to state seat preferences (or even not book a seat). If I am just checking train times, and perhaps prices, without wishing to book, I usually use FSR.
