    Received this offer AFTER I had paid for my tickets. A bit disappointed.

  • Kathy

    Can you use the Britrail Extra Day promotion on the South West Pass?

  • Solcina

    I bought my tickets two weeks ago… feel the same…and more.

  • Steven Beasley

    Bought passes with the extra day promotion for the past four years. Searched for the promotion this year and did not find it. Purchased my pass without the promotion. Now I find the promotion is offered and I don’t qualify, Does not seem right!

  • Trevor

    I too bought my rail pass a few months back. However, I bought it from the British Tourist Authority as it worked out cheaper than through my South African outlet. I was fearful of a potential price increase. Also bought an Oyster card at the same time.

  • Marjolein

    I bought my pass 2 weeks ago and feel very disappointed about this offer coming so late.

  • Graeme

    Likewise very disappointed. Purchased tickets in good faith 3 months ago. Why should we miss out?

  • Eric

    I am mad – just bought ticket two weeks ago – it just arrived and then this promotion of an extra day came up. There needs to be flexibility to allow those of us an extra day.

  • Eric

    Management could permit an extra day for those who ordered, say, in June/July

  • Randy

    I agree with the others who are expressing their disappointment with
    this offer. The e-mail arrived on the 18th for a promotion that starts
    on the 15th after I purchased first class tickets on the 12th! Its not
    like I purchase Britrail tickets every month! Once every few years is
    more typical.

  • JudyGreg

    They usually announce this promo in April. Because they didn’t and prices had risen so much we changed our destination to a driving trip thru Ireland. Not good for Britrail!

  • RubenBastien

    The BritRail South West Pass does not come with an extra day. The Extra Day Promotion is only offered on the regular BritRail Pass and the BritRail England Pass.

  • RubenBastien

    Thanks for showing interest in the BritRail Pass. We comply with the guidelines set by the train operating companies in the UK, and as such we announced this promotion for the dates they have selected.

  • Bob

    Also just purchased BritRail passes on July 7th and could have used that extra day, Seems very unfair that we are not able to take advantage of this arbitrary offer date just because we were being proactive in booking our travel arrangements well in advance.

    Me too. Just received my pass dated 14th July. Pretty disgusted that the extra day was not added. Would like a response from ACP.

  • Roger. From Canada

    This later than usual promotion is a poor business decisionby the Britrail people. In future, more and more travelers are going to delay buying or not buy at all, which will mean Britrail loses a great deal of income. They should consider rewarding those who purchase tickets early,not the ones who buy later. A very poor decision by those responsible
