My daughter is in Liverpool at present and feels unsafe with the present situation and wants to get home to Teesside as quickly as possible. I want to buy her rail ticket for this but what is the best way of doing this remotely for her (I'm in Belfast). If I buy a ticket on-line for her and give her the collection reference will the machine still require my bank card to be inserted? I've read some comments that TOD machines will accept any card as long as the collection reference is given but obviously I don't want to buy the ticket only for her not to be able to collect it. If doing it this way isn't an option how else can i best buy a ticket for her?
