How does Railboard make money?

Railboard doesn’t charge a booking fee, but when we find you a saving using Split Tickets, we take a commission of up to 15% from that saving.

In the above screenshot, the full price for the ticket would have been £28.00. Railboard was able to find a saving of £10.00 using Split Tickets. Of that saving, the customer’s share was £8.50 and Railboard’s share was £1.50 (15% of the total saving).

In the app, Railboard’s share of the saving is called the ‘Share of saving fee’.

The money made from this makes it possible to make Railboard. It goes towards app development, design, customer services, server costs, card processing fees and a variety of other things involved in running and developing the app.
