Worth it!J Cowderoy ,AustraliaAge: 25-29July 29, 2014
I buy a Britrail pass every time I travel in Britain. It's worth it if you're leaving London more than once or twice - it's cheaper after that, and it saves buying a ticket every time. Train is pretty much the best way to travel in the UK. There can be hiccups - one of my trips the line south was closed and I had to dash around a round-a-bout route via Manchester - but it still saves a lot of time (and comfort!) compared to driving. Definitely download the National Rail app, it makes the whole network easy to navigate :)

Great value for moneyElizabeth Johnston ,AustraliaAge: 18-24July 28, 2014
I was a bit nervous buying a BritRail pass because despite what it tries to do, I have heard mixed reviews. I used it today for the first time and I have to say that I am so glad I decided to go with it. The staff I spoke to were all very helpful in showing me what to do with the pass, and I absolutely love that I can jump on to any train and go wherever I like, whenever I like! Looking at the prices I definitely think I have saved money too, especially because I am travelling in summer so national rail journeys can be quite expensive normally! The only problem is that it doesn't guarantee you a seat - that is an additional cost - just something to be weary of, especially in this busy period I would definitely recommend this pass to my friends - what a great idea!

The best way to travel in UKLeonardo Garcia ,ArgentinaAge: 30-39July 25, 2014
A couple of weeks ago, I came back from a trip across UK. I bought the Flexible BritRail Pass (instead of the Consecutive) as I was not going to be travelling every day. I also bought a first class pass as I wanted to experience the first class service. And it was worth every penny. The service is excellent and the first class cars were great: food service and WiFi are included (WiFi could be a little slow sometimes and, depending on the location, you may lose connection but, in general works fine) and the seats are very comfortable. Just be aware of one thing: not all trains have have first class, so make sure that the ones you are going to take provide this kind of service. Otherwise, you will be paying more money for nothing. I’d also recommend reserving a seat in advance. If you don’t have a seat reserved and the seats are all taken, you may end up travelling in coach or you may not have a seat at all. Although the latter is extremely rare, it may happen if you take a train in rush hour. So, to sum up, I totally recommend buying this pass and, if you want to have an even better service and your budget allows it, buy the first class pass. You won’t regret it!

Great way to get aroundBenny ,AustraliaAge: 18-24July 24, 2014
Fantastic from the start. Didn't manage to book until the last minute, but it was sent promptly and arrived well within time. Getting up to Glasgow and back through Leamington was a breeze thanks to the pass. It was also very useful as many of the tracks flooded while I was travelling, so I was able to change trains easily and without extra cost thanks to the BritRail pass. The trains were always clean and comfortable as well. Couldn't really be any easier.

Super smooth traveling for a cheap price!Nina Larsson ,SwedenAge: 18-24July 13, 2014
Me and my boyfriend just had our dream journey traveling around the UK by train. We decided to get the consecutive travelcard for 15 days, since it was cheap (we're both students) and seemed smooth. We were suprised how good it actually was! It was so nice to just go to the train station and take the next train with no times to catch. We did'nt have to wait for long, maybe 30-40 minutes at maximum. It was eaasy and quick to just show your cards to the gatekeeper and then go on the train. To our suprise we never had to stand up or had any problem to fit our luggage. Sometimes there was screaming kids at the train, but theres nothing to do about that. Otherwise the trains were comfortable and at some trains they even had tv! At the stations the stuff was friendly and helpful, but sometimes there could be quite long queues to the information desks, so you have to manage things on your own sometimes if you don't wanna waist your time in the queue. The whole experience has been great and I woluld defenetly bye this travelcard again. The only thing that would have made it even better was if Irland would have been included aswell.:-) Overall a great product i strongly recomend!

Annoying ticket barriersArnold ,The NetherlandsAge: 18-24July 08, 2014
Had a great time in Great Britain. The price for a first class BritRail Pass can easily be lower than separate standard class tickets. I found the ticket barriers very annoying. These belong in underground stations and not in railway stations. Every time I had to take out the pass from my backpack to show it to the attendant at the station. I would have rather had a magnetic version of the pass to get past these barriers.

Could have been better. Rachael ,United States of AmericaAge: 30-39July 08, 2014
I would have liked to give out more four star ratings, but, based on my experience I just couldn't. Firstly, my weekend trip to Scotland landed on a bank holiday. I had never heard of a bank holiday and had absolutely no idea what it was, but, apparently it is when everyone in London shuts down for a few days and goes out of town. Since, my friends and I didn't know what time we would be able to leave we were unable to reserve specific seats, and since everyone and their dog was going out of town that translated into us having to sit on the floor at the very back of the train between the doors until we were able to grab some unclaimed seats. After having already paid over $200 for my ticket I wasn't extremely happy about that. I feel that some sort of prior warning could have been forthcoming since I feel the British should know when their holidays are. Another issue I had is that I don't understand why the older you get the more expensive it is to ride the train. It's not as if since I'm older I took up more room. And quite frankly, at 31 I just don't think I am That old. Isn't that a clear practice of ageism? I also don't feel as if there was much explanation or direction for first time travelers. My friends and I just had to wander around until we were able to figure out what we needed to do. The train itself wasn't so bad. It was pretty clean and spacious. The way home was a much better and less crowded experience. However, there was again a lack of railway authority. We were riding in a quiet coach, which basically means talk quietly and use headphones if you want to watch anything. At one stop a group of extremely loud, obnoxious, and rowdy boys got on the train. Though another passenger asked them to be quiet they continued talking as if they were the only people on the train. I feel that there should have been some railway personnel present to enforce the quiet coach rules, especially to support the passenger who had asked them to tone it down.

Britrail Pass Very EffectiveMark Archibald ,USAAge: 50-59July 08, 2014
I recently spent two weeks in England and Wales with a group of college students from the USA. We traveled extensively by train, frequently making multiple stops in one day. The Britrail Pass was ideal for our situation, providing mobility and flexibility at a reasonable cost. It not only reduced the cost significantly over individual trip tickets, it made planning and logistics much, much easier. The flexibility to catch a later train proved invaluable, as it allowed us to stay a bit longer at sites that were particularly interesting. I hope to repeat this trip in the future with another group of students, and we will definitely use Britrail Passes again.

Just terrific!Lorene Noble ,AustraliaAge: 60+July 05, 2014
In May, celebrating my husband's 70th birthday, we treated ourselves to Seniors first class passes for eight consecutive days so we could both relax and enjoy the time we had available. We validated our passes at London Euston, travelling then to Glasgow Central and then on to Gourock. Next day back to Glasgow Central for the wonderful West Coast scenery to Mallaig and return.Day three to Largs, back to Glasgow Queen Street and then through Stirling and Perth to Inverness. From there a special day of East Coast travel up to Thurso and Wick and return. Day five took us to Edinburgh where we overnighted before returning late afternoon on day six to London Kings Cross via Newcastle and York. Next day, London to Winchester and return and final day on the Heathrow Express. Eight terrific days, enhanced by having the London Oyster card for the London transitions [offered online with the passes], by being able to use the first class lounges in the larger cities, some fun meals and snacks, and great service from helpful people everywhere. We used the free reservation service offered only in Edinburgh but in high season would recommend more. Great value and wonderful memories.
