I bought this because I like any opportunity to see a bit of cath kidston print in my handbag. I love the prints, I really do. I'd bought this to hold my railcard, which takes up two slots, then the train ticket takes up the last slot.
With it being made from oilcloth it is waterproof and wipe ckean, it's available in a variety of prints and inside the pockets are clear do you can see what is inside each pocket.
The only slight drawbacks to the pockets are that one if them has the cath kidston logo on it and it can block some of the railcard from view (my face!) but no ticket inspector has queried me on this as of yet. The other tiny drawback is that the pouches are a wee but tight, so it's difficult to put the railcard in and get it back out again, but I guess they means that if it's loose in your bag there's less chance of the railcard accidentally falling out?
Overall though I think it serves it's purpose well, I'd recommend it!
Since becoming a student I've been travelling so much more than I ever used to: I never really traveled by train before going to university but now I may as well be an expert. After using the train a few times I decided it was probably a good idea to buy a ticket holder to keep my tickets and railcard etc all in the one place: cards are essential in my life and I constantly worried about losing them until I bought this!
I saw this in Cath Kidston when my mum was in there looking at bags and thought it looked perfect: exactly what I needed! Cath Kidston also offer student discount at 10% meaning this only cost me £5 - this is a great price for such a high quality and essential product. The usual price without discount is £6 which is still reasonable.
There are three card slots with the Cath Kidston logo on the middle one: each slot is accessible from one side and is protected by thick plastic so that there's no way that your cards/ tickets will be ruined by the rain. The exterior is made from 100% PVC and is easily wiped clean and not affected by rain. I would say that the middle card slot is much harder to get into than the outer two so I usually put cards that I don't use as much in that one. Each slot can also hold a lot of cards/tickets: I think I had at least 10 tickets in one slot at one point.
There's loads of different colours and patterns to get this in: all of the usual Cath Kidston patterns. I bought it in a deep red with beige spots as I'm not much of a floral person.
Its size is 7.5cm x 10cm which is a decent size to fit in pretty much any bag and it isn't too thick either: I'd say that it's about the same size as my phone, meaning that they both fit side by side in my bag.
Overall I'd say that this is a great ticket holder: essential for those who do a lot of travelling. It comes in a lovely range of patterns, which is what you'd expect from Cath Kidston and is definitely worth the money. I've also had it for over half a year now and it looks good as new.
As an individual, I am the first to hold my hands up and say I am pretty disorganised. I find myself constantly in a rush when I am travelling around, and nothing ever has a true place in my handbag or purse. I am forever losing bus tickets and train tickets in the deep depths of my handbags. So when I received this lovely ticket holder as a gift, I was really pleased to put it to good use.
I did not purchase this myself, but received it as a gift. The retail price of this ticket holder is £6.00. I feel that this is relatively cheap for Cath Kidston and a fair price for the amount I use it. Cath Kidston is one of my favourite product brands and is stocked online, in their own stores as well as in some department stores.
This ticket holder comes in all sorts of designs and patterns. Mine is actually the one shown in the image. It is a white colour with a pink floral pattern printed all over. It is very girly and chic. If this is not for you, there are a few different colours and designs to choose from, most having quite a vintage feel. I love the appearance of it, and could not fault this. The actual ticket holder is made of 100% PVC coated cotton. Because of this, it means it always stays perfectly clean, even if you purchase the white one. Being in my bag with all sorts of foods and make up products, I know I can always just wipe clean this ticket holder and it will look brand new again.
The ticket holder is very compact, and is able to fit in smaller bags and pockets making it easy to carry around. The dimensions are H10 x W20.5cm when opened fully. The pattern from the outside continues throughout the holder when opened. Inside, there are actually three compartments to store tickets and other little bits and bobs. One on the left, one on the right and one in the middle. I personally only use the left and right compartments as I feel you can slide tickets inside safely without them sliding back out. As the middle compartment can be accessed from either side, I feel that there is a better chance of something slipping out but this is just a personal choice. The compartments I use hold tickets well and display them clearly. I also have to note that they are not too tight either which is a problem I've faced in the past with compartments in purses. This makes it quick and easy when travelling.
Generally, I use the ticket most days and have found it really useful as I commute to and from work via public transport. For people who get trains and buses regularly or hold travel cards, I would really recommend this ticket holder. It stores everything in a safe place and when conductors come to check your tickets, you can find them quickly and easily without the worry of losing them. It sounds like such a simple product, but it has come in really handy for me. Another use which I find it good for is nights out. If I am going out on the town, I only want to take a small bag. This fits in easily and can store my ID, debit/credit cards and sometimes I slide a few notes into the compartment. Although this will hold money, it won't hold it very securely so I wouldn't recommend putting more than one or two notes in. I only do this on nights out but it does the trick for me.
Overall, I feel that 4/5 is a fair rating for this ticket holder. It is affordable, extremely practical for those who travel on public transport, and to top it off it looks cute too! Only let downs are the middle compartment and the fact it doesn't hold money too well. But as it is a ticket holder, and this is what it is designed to hold - a very good product overall. Thanks for reading.
~ Why I Bought It ~
As soon as I saw this, I wanted it! It is really adorable and I knew it would come in handy for something or other.
~ Price ~
I paid £6 for this card holder which is the retail price. This might seem a bit expensive for what is quite a small and basic item but the gorgeous design, great quality and durability of it makes it worth the money.
~ My Opinion ~
Not only is this ticket holder adorable and really well designed but it has come in really handy and I have used it pretty much everyday since I bought it. I use it mainly to keep receipts and bus tickets in as this saves room in my purse and keeps them all together before i get the chance to sort them out, but if you live in London or go there regularly it will be ideal to keep your Oyster card in!
When I'm going out to a bar, or clubbing or somewhere that requires identity to prove my age, I will put my ID card in one of the compartments, as it keeps it protected so I can't lose it and it is quick to open it, show the person on the door, close it and put it back in my bag knowing that my card is secure and won't get lost. It is also the ideal size for folded up bank notes and my debit card, which saves taking my purse out with me. The card holder is 10cm high and is 20.5cm in width.
There are three compartments in this ticket holder which are clear so the contents can be seen through the compartment, and the cath Kidston logo (a white, rectangular piece of rubber with red writing) is on the middle compartment. The logo is what makes the product worth the money because it shows that it is a genuine Cath Kidston product and not a cheap dupe.
The quality is excellent. I particularly like the material (pvc coated cotton) which has an almost cord material feel to it. It feels very good quality and is lightweight and it doesn't take up much room at all - it fits perfectly in the inside compartment of my cath Kidston book bag and can also fit easily inside a small clutch without taking up much room.
As for the design, it comes in a few different patterns (too many to name). Mine is red with white polka dots and it has subtle stitching detail - simple but cute. I have had my ticket holder for around a year now and have got lots of use out of it. It is not showing any sign of wear at all and is in as good condition as the day I bought it. There's no loose stitching or anything and the colour has not faded.
~ All in All ~
Cute, practical and good value. I would definitely recommend this ticket holder and mine has been worth every penny.
I've been looking for a pretty ticket holder after my last ticket holder ripped got damaged from rain, wear and tear. Whilst I was browsing in John Lewis, I saw Cath Kidston Ticket Holders range on display and their vintage designs really caught my eyes. Since I've got some vouchers from doing online surveys and other things, I decided to use my vouchers for a nice little treat.
This Cath Kidston ticket holder cost me £6.00. The one I've purchased is different from the dooyoo picture; I own the 'Kempton Rose' design that has a nice pale lime green background with roses pattern. I love the design and the colour scheme, it's very typical of Cath Kidston but that's the reason why I really like this design. It has places for 3 cards inside, which is good enough for me. Also, I sometimes put a couple of £10 notes at the back of the cards for emergencies and the slot is tight enough to hold both the bank notes and the card.
The material used for this ticket holder is cotton with transparent PVC sewn on as a top layer. I've had this ticket holder for about 5 months now and except from a tiny tear where the middle fold is, the rest of the ticket holder is in very good condition. I have to say the material used is of good quality and it's pretty durable. This ticket holder got battered in the rain plenty of times, which is nothing unusual considering the British weather, but it does protect my cards really well. The water-proof PVC is very useful for someone who travels a lot. Especially in my case, I use my ticket holder for my debit card, university ID card and travel card; therefore, the water-proof material is a must for my ticket holder as my bag tends to get soaked during daily commutes from home to uni.
Overall, this Cath Kidston ticket holder is a pretty and nifty product for someone with a busy schedule. In my case, I think this product is quite useful because I don't like to keep taking my purse out of my bag everyone I get on a bus or a train. Also, at university, I have to show my ID card to have access to most buildings and it's quite convenient with this ticket holder; I can just put this in my pocket as it's small enough, which I couldn't do with my purse, when I want to go in and out of buildings frequently. I have a bad habit of leaving my bag at my desk or in a library computer room and it used to be that I couldn't go in because I forgot my purse. Therefore, this ticket holder is a very useful purchase for me.
Price wise, it's quite expensive for a ticket holder as I know you can get cheaper ones with good designs as well. However, this is one of the times where I can pay a little bit extra for a prettier design with good quality. Technically I got mine for free using my vouchers so it's a plus for me. It's a good purchase overall.
Thank you for reading. :) x
I love Cath Kidston and her quirky floral print products and have a few different ones. I got my ticket holder in the January sales for only £3 but it usually sells for £6 which I'm not sure I would pay. It isn't because I don't think that it is a good product but for me personally it just isn't very practical.
My ticket holder looks different from the one here on dooyoo but it does have a floral pattern of pink flowers and a beige background.
Inside it has three compartments for your tickets which is loads of room for tickets but this is where I find that personally it doesn't have much use for me. There is no coin pouch which is understandable but as I don't really travel on the train much anymore I find that it just doesn't offer me enough room for my day to day needs as although it is fine for tickets there is no room in it for anything else so even if I do use it for tickets I still have to carry my purse with me for everything else.
It is made of a nice hard wearing material that is wipe clean so it can go through quite a bit of abuse. The pattern really is lovely and whenever I have used it people have admired it. I think it would be great for students and those who use the train on a regular basis but for most people I just don't think it would be of much use.
I do think the price I paid was fantastic value and even for the £6 I think it is worth is if you base it on how well made it is and ignore the fact it is a little unpractical.
How much you will appreciate this depends on whether or not you like the kitch vintage pattern and if you think you really need a separate ticket holder or not. I love the look of it and would definitely use it if I had the need
I have a bit of a Cath Kidston addiction, I really like Cath Kidston products and I have quite a few of the bags, purses and other items that she sells.
I received a Cath Kidston ticket holder as a Secret Santa gift earlier this year. Our Secret Santa gift limit was just £5.00, and so when I opened this little Cath Kidston gift I was a bit taken aback and shocked as I thought that 'Santa' must have spent way more than £5.00, as I know that Cath Kidston products are normally very expensive. However it turned out that although 'Santa' did spend more than £5.00, he only actually spent £1.00 more, as this little Cath Kidston ticket holder was actually just £6.00.
As with most Cath Kidston products this comes in range of different colours and designs, the majority of which happen to be floral. I have the ticket holder in the mini dots fabric, in a beautiful berry red colour - a very festive colour choice there Santa! I really love the design and colour of this as I think that it makes it look quite funky and trendy, and it's also easy to find at the bottom of my overstuffed handbags.
The ticket holder itself is made from a durable PVC coated cotton, and so any spills or make up explosions just wipe off this easily enough with a tissue or a wet one. It folds up like a tri-fold wallet and it's really small when folded, it's basically just the size of a credit card or your driving license. When the ticket holder is opened it has 3 internal pockets to hold your travel pass, tickets, receipts, cards, or whatever else you choose to pop in there. The interior of the ticket holder is also lined in the same beautiful berry red colour mini dots PVC coated cotton, and the internal pockets have clear PVC windows so that you can see the contents of each pocket. The little Cath Kidston logo is sewn onto the middle pocket.
I can honestly say that this is something that I never would have ended up buying for myself, as I would have thought that I'd not really get any use out of it. However I've actually had a lot more use out of this than I thought I would.
I use this to hold a travel pass if I'm working away from home and get a weekly pass or ticket, or to hold my Oyster card when in London, I stash my train tickets and taxi receipts in this to then claim back from work and this stops me losing most of them, I pop my overseas loyalty cards in this to use whilst travelling, etc. I like that it has the 3 internal pockets so that I can keep things separate and organised. Each of the pockets is quite roomy too, I can fit 3 debit cards in each section, or a wide selection of tickets and passes.
I'd certainly recommend this little Cath Kidston ticket holder, and I think that it makes a really lovely little inexpensive gift for someone.
I was bought this ticket holder as a present, I wouldn't usually buy such a designer item for myself as trying to save the pennies at the moment! Nevertheless, this was a lovely gift to receive for my birthday last year.
I have often admired Cath Kidston products in department stores such as the Birmingham Bullring Selfridges and in the actual Cath Kidston outlets found in areas with designer stores such as Bristol!
I prefer some of the prints to others, as I find some of the shades too drab, but this ticket holder (as pictured) features a lovely light pink rose theme which is exactly to my taste.
I usually use this for train tickets and day pass bus tickets so I don't forget where I've put them in my pockets (as I am quite forgetful with things like this and prone to losing important travel passes! I sometimes fit my railcard in here too as my purse is getting a little tired and I'm out of space in my purse due to the large amount of loyalty cards I have recently acquired!
This is also useful on a night out to store my ID (driving license) and my bank card (should I be so reckless as to take it out with me!) However, this is quite small and so I would recommend sticking it in a zip up pocket or inside a secure place inside a handbag to reduce risk of losing it.
I prefer to use my purse to hold most tickets as it's an extra thing to remember to stick in my handbag, so if I hadn't been bought this as a prezzy I'm not sure I would have bought it myself, though I have previously admired ticket holders in Accessorize at a slightly cheaper price tag.
The design is simple and effective for purpose, with a very pretty flower print for a feminine look to the product. It's very nice if you have matching Cath Kidston stuff.
These fold out with three compartments which is ample space for everything you need to take out with you and can prove less bulky than a purse if you don't strictly need to take a purse out with you.
--Price and availability--
These are online for £6 each plus delivery on eBay, John Lewis and Cath Kidston online. Cath Kidston products are available in many department stores and are stylish and feminine.
The Cath Kidston range also features tote bags, aprons, cooking utensils, bags, raincoats, stationary - you name it!
I give this four stars, as Cath Kidston products are slightly too expensive for me to justify spending the money on pretty little extras, however as a gift it is a lovely thought.
I am a big fan of Cath Kidston and I have a number of products in the Cath Kidston range. I love the fact that Cath Kidston products are contemporary and yet traditional in design - and that the patterns are generally just really pretty. I was given the Cath Kidston Ticket Holder as present from a friend. I don't know what she paid for it, but I currently see it is available from the Cath Kidston website (www.cathkidston.co.uk) for £6.00. To be honest, I was surprised it was so low in price because Cath Kidston products do tend to be quite overpriced - and so this ticket holder would be good for anyone who wants a Cath Kidston product but doesn't have loads of money to spare. I think £6.00 is a fair price.
The ticket holder comes in a variety of different designs, but the one I have is the Victoria Rose pattern. I particularly like this design because it's one of the most recognisable Cath Kidston designs - and it's also one of the most attractive (in my opinion!). This design is navy blue with little pink, red and blue roses scattered on it in a random order.
It looks like a little purse and consists of three sections that are folded over in order to create a kind of mini folder. Each section is made up of plastic slips which mean that tickets can be placed inside it and they can be on view. They are credit card size and so they are suitable for most tickets which you would use on a daily basis. In one holder I have my Oyster card, in another I have my driving license, and in the final one I have my security card for work. The cards do fit in quite snugly and so it's a tight fit and so it's not always that easy to remove the tickets front the holder if you need to remove it quickly. It is for this reason that I only tend to put in tickets which don't need to be taken in and out all of the time. With the Oyster card and my security card, I can scan the cards over the reader without taking the card out of the holder and so this makes it convenient for me.
The card holder feels well made and I've had it about a year and it still looks good as new. It hasn't frayed and all of the stitching is still intact - and so it feels like it's built to last. It is coated and so this makes it splash proof and it can also be wiped over with just a damp cloth. I like that it's small enough to fit inside a small pocket and so this means that it's easy enough to get to in a hurry when needed.
Overall, I think the Cath Kidston Ticket Holder is a nice little product that is not completely necessary, but it can be convenient to have somewhere to put tickets so that they're easy to find when you need them.
I used to work in London up until a few years ago and now I go in about once or twice a month to see friends after work or meet my husband for a drinks and dinner date. I have an Oyster card which is a a travel card that you top up with money and then use to swipe in and out of the barriers at Underground stations.
I wanted a nice carry case for this and also for my overground rail tickets as well, a sort of dedicated ticket holder that was just specifically for this purpose so I knew I always had my tickets with me and I wouldn't lose them if I just stuffed them in my wallet. When I saw the range at Cath Kidston I just knew I had to get one as I love her designs and thought that the ticket holder was exactly what I was looking.
Cath Kidston produce a wide range of products, products for the home, clothing, beauty etc and all in amazingly cool, old fashioned whimsical patterns. Cath Kidston is well known for her nostalgic floral patterns which are lovely but I am actually a big fan of her star prints. I don't know why but I really like the look of stars and have a number of products from her star range including a bag, mugs and now this ticket holder. The ticket holder does come in a number of different prints but this one for me really stands out, it quite different to the other prints and looks really good in my opinion.
She does two different star prints as far as I am aware, one with a white background and coloured stars on it and then a small star print which has a blue background and small stars. This ticket holder is blue with red, pink, green and yellow stars on it. The ticket holder is made of that plastic type material meaning it is wipe clean which is nice as this does get dirty from time to time carrying it to London and back. This material is very hard wearing as well and after a couple of years of use it is still as good as new and shows no signs of giving up any time soon.
The ticket holder is simple, it doesn't have a coin purse or anything like that but that was all I wanted, a thin little ticket holder that would either fit in my bag or my pocket to use on the tube and this works perfectly. The holder folds three ways so you can open it up and then there are slots inside to hold your tickets and Oyster card. The nice thing is that I can scan my Oyster card on the machines without having to take it out of the holder as the technology works through the fabric so its great to not have to fiddle with it.
The ticket holder cost me £6 which I think is an absolute bargain for a good quality, good looking product.
I absolutely adore my ticket holder. It is made of beautifully hard wearing fabric, and is the perfect size. It's been made from beautiful vintage style Cath Kidston printed fabric, and is so very elegant. It really is a useful piece of kit for a night out when you don't want to take out your full purse for fear of losing it.
It really is useful for me when I am going anywhere by train as it will hold all of the required tickets while keeping my purse hidden and safe in my bag. It's beautifully made, and hard wearing, although I am regretting my decision to get it in such a pale colour combination, as it has gone a bit grubby round the edges.
Information from the Cath Kidston website:
Composition : 100% PVC coated cotton excl. trim Size: 7.5cm x 10cm (Closed), 20.5cm x 10cm (open)
Not to sound too gushy, but all of Cath Kidston's products are of such good quality, and really are beautiful to see they really are worth the money you pay for them. The ticket holder is a folding wallet that will protect all of the contents, but the floral designs make it easy to spot in your bag.
The item purchased is currently on sale, and is at time of writing £4 in certain designs, although the normal selling price if these is £6.
My friend bought me this Cath Kidston Ticket Holder for Christmas last year. Cath Kidston, for those unaware, is a popular British fashion brand mostly based in colourful floral patterns. I only found out about the brand and its stores back when I started university because my friends absolutely love the stuff! Although I wouldn't say I'm a massive fan I do like some of their products that aren't overly girly. In fact I was even looking at purchasing their ticket holder when it came down in price, so I was pretty happy and relieved when my friend gave it to me as a present instead!
The ticket holder is only £6.00 and different styles are available through Cath Kidston stores or at online, either on the main website or through an outlet such as ASOS. The one I received is like in Ciao's picture except it has a light green background colour instead of blue. The small flowers all over the product are very pretty and surprisingly don't make it seem childish, and at the same time you can tell this product is part of the Cath Kidston brand.
Now obviously the aim of the ticket holder is to keep your train tickets and ID in order. Now the Cath Kidston ticket holder opens up into three sections of a plastic pocket to place them in. I have my 16-25 railcard in the middle section so when I open up the ticket holder it's easy for the inspector to spot it. Then I put my actual ticket(s) in one compartment and train reservation into the others. They are easily kept in place and don't slip out at all. I do admit though that it's sometimes hard to get the tickets out quickly because the plastic compartments are very tight- you have to ease them out gently, but obviously it's problematic if you're in a crowded area trying to get them out near the ticket barriers and holding yourself back in the process! Despite this, I'd rather that than have all my tickets and railcard jumbled in my coat pocket or somewhere more inconvenient and having to fumble for the one I need!
Overall I really like this Cath Kidston Ticket Holder. It's useful and very compact meaning it should easily fit in a coat or trouser pocket. £6.00 isn't a bad price either, especially if you get free delivery when buying it online (i.e. off ASOS). If you want a little something to keep your train tickets organised and a fan of floral designs then check out this brand!
