When I bought my pass (Paper) for planned-limited use I realized the pass cost was similar to the planned separate rail trips if I purchased them in advance. I could have got more value from the pass if I did more travel however I needed only 3 specific train rides. The pass did help in flexibility when one train segment was altered due to track maintenance and I had take 2 different legs around the maintenance spot so I simply had to show the pass instead of explaining why a specific ticket was valid on a different route due to maintenance. The trains I traveled on were crowded and though I paid for a non-first calss reserved seat, its side was at a blank wall instead of a window...I couldn't change seats even though I had the non-first class pass because all other seats were occupied. For my itinerary, the pass was about as good as having bought precise tickets, however I can understand how other non-UK based rail travelers would get a lot more value than I did.

Excellent product. Mixed experience on the different Trains. First class pass: London to York on LNER - Excellent service. York to Exeter on Cross Country - Food disappointing! Exeter to London on SE Railways - Food trolley non-existent!

Splurged on 1st class Britrail passes and wow was that worth it! Didn't really have to plan our trips ahead at all. Used the Trainline app to see which upcoming trains had 1st class on them, then just walked on. Plenty of roomy seats and lots of space for our luggage, even while on some trains the other cars were packed and standing room only. Got free tea, soft drinks, cookies and cake every time, and even free sandwiches on some trains. One train the tea was in china cups! So relaxing. Would 100% choose 1st class again in future.

To my surprise, the BritRail M-Pass arrived not as an electronic pass in standard format for storage in the Apple Wallet, but as a PDF that had to be downloaded from email and then stored somewhere on my phone. I ended up putting it in the Apple Books app. The PDF was a single very long, narrow page such that I had to manually zoom in on the pass every time I wanted to use it; otherwise the QR code would be too small to read. Even with the PDF zoomed in to enlarge the QR code, the pass failed to scan correctly at many railway gates and we had to be waved through by railway staff. That said, all the railway station staff and train conductors recognized the pass and we didn't have any difficulty getting it accepted for travel. It was great to be able to hop on any train at any time and not worry about peak vs off-peak fares or having to buy tickets weeks in advance for the best price. We roughly planned our itinerary in advance but the M-Pass allowed us to change plans freely as we went along. We didn't use the trains every day so the pass cost us approximately the same as if we had bought individual advance tickets, but it allowed us much more flexibility of plans and we didn't have to pay the steeper price for last-minute fares. Overall the BritRail program is GREAT for travelers; I just wish the pass would be formatted for compatibility with the Apple Wallet.

This is a brilliant Pass - takes all the hassle out of train travel and means no higher prices to travel during rush hour. I'd recommend this to anyone!

We purchased the 15 day Brit Rail pass IN ADVANCE for our first trip to England. We were there two weeks and saw every coast and corner of the UK. Not only was it great value for the money (saved us over $400 CAD) but it also encouraged us to keep exploring instead of staying in one area of the country. the only glitch was we had it on our phones and about half the gates couldn't read us but there was always helpful rail staff to get us through. the trains were always on time, easy to find seating and clean. loved the beverage service for the rushed trips. As we were from out of country our pass wouldn't let us reserve seats in advance but we just made sure we weren't travelling during rush hours and there was not problem getting good seats. I will definitely buy another on our next trip when visiting Europe.

If you’re planning on traveling by train then I recommend you buy this pass. We had the 4 day flexipass. Good for any 4 days within 31 days. On your first day of travel you need to get it validated at the ticket counter after that you’re good to go. No more line ups for buying tickets. We saved around $500 with the pass compared to buying a ticket for each trip. It was accepted on all trains throughout England. So easy and convenient to use. Just board the train, show the pass and that’s it. No hassle at all. The Britrail pass is a must for anyone considering train travel as your main transportation. Highly recommend it.

This was my second time to travel in the UK with the rail pass and will do so again in the future. Excellent value for money and no limitations on the type of trains to board. Rail pass made it possible for my family to enjoy holidays in the UK without the need to rent a car.
