UK train travel

UK Train tickets must be purchased through the UCL's Trainline portal which is administered by Ian Allan Travel. 

You will need to sign up for an account using the UCL Business ID (which takes less than 5 minutes). The site allows you to purchase using purchasing card or purchase order.


Log on and select your travel date, time, etc.  The site will show the cost of your journey.  Email the details (cost, journey details, grant code)  to GEE-Orders@ucl.ac.uk and ask for a Purchase Order Number (PO) made out to Ian Allan Travel. Once you have your PO number, go back to the site, enter your PO details and confirm your purchase.

Tickets can be held in the basket for 9 hours  and ordering via this site allows you to cancel or amend tickets online and use any card to pick up tickets from fast ticket machines at train stations.

For further information please see the contract details at this intranet page

For non-UK rail travel, email Ian Allan Travel as you would for booking a flight.
