What to expect from redspottedhanky.com
We thought that we should tell you why we created the service and what you should expect from us - our commitment to you, our customers
What we're about
We want you to enjoy buying your tickets with us, we want to make the experience more enjoyable by delivering a service that you can trust in and rely upon.
At redspottedhanky.com, we believe in honesty and trust, and we are committed to our customers.
We'll give you something back
We realise that travel is done for a reason - not many people in the world use trains, planes and automobiles just for the sake of travelling, and we understand these are all means to an end.
We believe that we stand alongside many people when we say the mechanism by which travel is sold online is not focused enough on the needs of today's travellers. There is too much focus on the ‘hardware’, whether it is a train, plane or automobile, and not enough focus on the software ‘experience’, customer service or inspiration.
At redspottedhanky.com, we believe we have a solution to fix this. We know any lasting solution will require long term commitment, and we're willing to give this to our customers.
Let’s be honest, travel is not cheap, and too many businesses seem to forget that there are real people like you, who may not feel like they're getting good value for money.
We won't charge you a booking fee
Unlike other train companies, we draw the line at booking fees. We strongly feel that you already paying for your ticket, so we're not going to double charge you.
We support our charity partners
With Redspottedhanky you can give your small change a big purpose. When purchasing through our app we offer the opportunity for you to round up the price of your ticket to the nearest pound. This small act of kindness will make a big difference.
This money will then be sent straight to our chosen charity partner, The Railway Children’s Charity. They do great work both around the UK and abroad, supporting children in need. In the UK they support thousands of vulnerable children each year around the UK rail network. You can find out more about what they do here https://www.railwaychildren.org.uk/.
We'll always be open and honest with you
It's generally accepted economic theory that transparent markets are more efficient, and help to reduce prices. So we'll make sure that redspottedhanky.com operates as openly and honestly as possible. We'll also take every opportunity - and even try to create opportunities - to lower ticket prices for you.
We'll make it easier to purchase travel tickets
Right now, even if you're able to find the tickets for the trip that you want to make, it's really not all that easy to buy them. Unmanned stations, poor websites, bad customer service, excessive fees and deceptive marketing all lead to customer problems.
