Can we buy a rail ticket from Belfast to Dublin and get them as an e-ticket?

we will be leaving for the UK this Sunday, and will be travelling from Belfast to Dublin on 13 June 2018. We want to buy 2 train tickets (singles) but if we have to have them physically mailed to us, we won't get them in time. Can't we get them as e-tickets??

    Hi Tessie,

    I'm sorry, however, tickets for trains in Ireland/Northern Ireland are not able to be issued electronically. Tickets from Belfast to Dublin are only able to be issued as physical documents that would have to be delivered to you.

    Any order placed on our website can take 24 to 48 hours to be processed in addition to the time it takes to ship the documents, which would be an additional 2 to 3 business days if the option of standard delivery is chosen or an additional 1 business day if the option of express delivery is chosen. If you wish to bypass the 24-48 hour processing time to ensure your documents are shipped out today for overnight delivery, you would have to call us to place your order. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays. The last shipment on any given weekday leaves our office at 5:30 PM CT.

    Currently, only tickets for trains in certain parts of Europe are able to be issued as e-tickets (in the form of print-at-home and/or print-at-station tickets). This includes domestic trains operating within the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany, and France, as well as some internationally operating trains between France and neighboring countries or Germany and neighboring countries. For all other trains, tickets are only able to be issued as physical documents that would have to be shipped to you prior to your departure.

    If tickets for a particular train are able to be issued as print-at-home or print-at-station tickets, then the option would display for you at the first step of the checkout process.

    As the years pass, we hope more of the rail networks enable e-ticketing for their trains. There are already many more trains offering e-ticketing than there was before. As recently as 10-15 years ago, all tickets were only issued as paper documents.
