Save when traveling with your very own little “princes and princesses”
Following the arrival of the Royal baby, we thought it’s the perfect opportunity to remind you that BritRail is a baby friendly and a family friendly way to journey across the UK. Read on to find out exactly how your family can save on a UK train trip, thanks to BritRail’s family discounts.
For starters, your children under the age of 5 travel for free and no pass or ticket is required. Also, you can realize savings for kids aged between 5 and 15 since when paired with an adult passholder they travel for free. That’s right, when a child under the age of 16 is traveling with an adult who has a valid BritRail Pass, he or she receives a Child For Free Pass, a pass that comes at no additional cost and carries the same type and validity as the adult pass it is paired with. This means that a family of four with two adults and two children only need to pay for two adult BritRail Passes and the children will be able to travel at no extra cost. Additional children, with no adult to be paired with, still saves 50% off the price of an adult pass.
Families with older children can also take advantage of a great BritRail discount! When 3 or more family members travel together, they can benefit from the party discount when they buy a BritRail, BritRail England or BritRail South West Party Pass, where the third through ninth person gets a 50% discount off the regular adult price. This makes the BritRail Party Pass a good option for families traveling with youth. Speaking of youth, they also get their own discount! The youth discount gives teenagers and young adults that are aged between 16 and 25 the opportunity to pay up to 20% less than the price of an adult BritRail Pass.
Not only is BritRail family friendly in terms of savings, but the whole experience is geared towards making your journey enjoyable for the whole family. Most trains offer 4 seat configurations with the seats facing each other. Often these seats are separated by a table, which is perfect for a family meal or a round of board games with everyone. And when the views are so memorable, the journey too can be a game. Have your kids create their own knights and princess stories as you pass by castles in Scotland, or try counting the sheep as your train rolls through the Cotswolds.
Various discounts apply to the different passes. Select your BritRail Pass to see which discounts your family can enjoy.
