What you using them for anyway? They offer the same tickets at National Rail Enquiries - Official source for UK train times and timetables (http://www.nationalrail.co.uk) for the same price, but don't charge you to send them out!

Indeed, I had to buy some tickets recently. I checked thetrainline.com then decided to check the price on the east coast line website. Got the same tickets for £15 less and free postage

They charge a booking fee on top of what the suppliers charge. I get my tickets directly from TPExpress.co.uk if i can be bothered to buy them online.

I typically use thetrainline to pick tickets at the station (posting is so last year), they charge £1 booking fee with debit card, price of tickets bought directly on train I use seem the same.
