"First Class" Was NotDr. Kenneth H. Yount ,USAAge: 60+February 13, 2014
I purchased three Britrail 8 day consecutive passes for my wife, sister and me last fall. It was not a good experience. We used the passes only five of the eight days, in large part because our gateway station had no train service on weekends during that time due to track repair. We have traveled by train hundreds of times in dozens of countries and we always buy the more expensive first class passes/tickets, for the extra space and privacy and quiet. But on Britrail, our "first class" experience was anything but. There were ALWAYS people with second class tickets crowding into the space and no one ever asked them to leave. The trains were overcrowded and second class would fill up and pretty soon the crowds backed into and through the door into the first class compartment and stood and sat there practically on top of us. One time, the conductor officially announced that our crowded train was "declassified" and that people with second class tickets could sit in first class and that people with first class tickets would be compensated, with a refund. We were told to get the refund from the agent at our next station. Once there, he told me to fill out a form. I did so and submitted it and heard nothing for two months. I finally got a form letter saying that due to a backlog of complaints, they would be delayed in addressing our issue. Two MORE months have now passed with no word. Also, on that same train, because they were running late, they just dropped our station! We were dumped out at a different station and had to wait for a later connecting train to get back. Despite our patience, none of this has ever been corrected or addressed by Britrail.

A stress relieverSylvia Tremblay ,CanadaAge: 40-49November 11, 2013
Using the Britrail pass made travelling much simpler. We didn't have to worry about queuing to buy tickets whenever we travelled - just hop on the train and go. The party discount made it affordable and cost-effective as well. Definitely a time saver and a stress reliever!

Worth it for the flexibilityDavid Shepherdson ,AustraliaAge: 30-39October 30, 2013
We've bought BritRail passes on more than one occasion when visiting relatives in the UK. The big advantage of having a pass over booking individual tickets is the flexibility -- for example, if you decide you want to leave earlier or later than planned, or if you decide at short notice that you want to make an extra detour, or even if you just miss a connection, you don't need to worry about any additional costs or bother; just show your pass and you can travel on whichever train you want. The added bonus of Heathrow Express transfers comes in handy too, making for a smooth start and end to your trip (since you usually need to go through London anyway to connect to trains to the rest of the country, even if you're not staying in London overnight).

The locals will be jealousJohn A ,United StatesAge: 30-39October 25, 2013
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a month-long pass and explore the entire United Kingdom. Absolutely, the ability to hop any train gives you a type of freedom that makes any vacation or visit richer and more enjoyable. Some of my travel was for work and I was able to get to my destinations with relative ease. Hung over the night before a big trip? No worries, take a later train! Nothing beats that. There is an element of caution, however. While the trains are relatively comfortable (less-so than their European neighbors) and run generally on time, the independent companies have this annoying tendency to cancel whole trains if not enough people are scheduled for them. Or if any rail work needs to be done on the bright sunny days that are good for traveling. The network -as a whole- is unreliable and inconsistent. I found myself on multiple occasions on a bus halfway across the country at midnight because of some stopped train, bringing a two hour trip to over six hours (on the worst instance). That being said, go for it. Just don't put too much trust in the trains running exactly as you need them. And the locals think it's amazing that you can just jump trains at any time. "Want to meet me for tea in Durham?" "But of course! I'll see you in two hours." You can't pass up an adventure like that.

Easy, fun, fantastic!Aleta DUnbar ,USAAge: 40-49October 21, 2013
Twenty years ago I attended Swansea University in Wales and received a BritRail pass as a Christmas present. It was so handy and such a great value for a travelling student. This last June I was married, and for our honeymoon we visited the UK. We bought BritRail passes and experienced the same convenience, adventure, and money well spent. Our travels took us from London to Cardiff, Caerleon, Swansea, and Holyhead, then from Troon to Edinburgh and Dumfries, and back south through Nottingham and on to London. My husband was a Marine who is now a double amputee, and staff both on the trains and in the stations were friendly and helpful. Disabled services are available and useful, and our whole trip was made all the more memorable with our BritRail flex passes. We will definitely be back and will recommend BritRail to friends. Thank you!

I am truly impressed by the prompt delivery service. I received my first class passes within 5 days of booking. I cannot wait for my vacation in November and will write another review thereafter. Thanks!

Wonderful ExperienceJoshua Parkes ,United StatesAge: 30-39October 18, 2013
I returned to Britain to visit my family after a long time away. My wife and I had used Britrail Passes on our first visit and liked the experience. This time we were traveling with our children and the complimentary passes for minors was just the beginning of our great experience with them. In the decade or so between our visits, Britrail Passes became even easier to use. The flexibility to walk into any station on any day within the time frame was incredibly convenient. Next time we may get the four day rather than the three day so we can take an extra day trip while with family.

Can't Wait to go Again!Sandi ,USAAge: 50-59October 11, 2013
What a great way to travel Great Britain...bought First Class tickets(the only way to go and the First Class lounges were awesome) and started in London. Traveled north and stayed in York, Edinburgh and Portree. Schedules were, for the most part, great. Had a little trouble getting to Portree from Kyle of Localsh due to some kind of track construction...train doesn't run to Portree but the bus that takes you there from Kyle didn't change its schedule to accomodate delayed train passengers even though it was an ongoing project. There were five of us traveling, three in our fifties, one 20 and one 17 year old. We all had a great time and can hardly wait to utilize the train system to see more of Europe.
