I purchased a flexible 4 day pass. The pass was easy to use, arrived when it was supposed to and saved me a substantial amount of money as some of my travel was at the end of the Easter break. I would recommend to anyone who is doing much train travel on short notice. The only two issues I had with the pass were: 1)trying to make reservations- I could not (did not understand) how to make reservations for my first train ride when I got to the UK which meant I did not have a seat from London to Edinburgh (a few hours without a seat on the ride)on a very busy Friday afternoon. The other issue is that the representatives at the train station ticket desks did not seem to want to help me out once I said I had a pass (perhaps they get some type of bonus for the number of tickets they sell??? -in fact a couple were quite dismissive and rude but that has nothing to do with the passes and more to do with the train providers' services I guess. All-in-all I would recommend to anyone who does not have a long time ahead to plan and work out their entire trip on cheap advance fairs.

Booked a England M-pass first class. It's simply amazing value. Not need to worry about missing trains, changing plans, or travelling at peak times. And the M pass is so much simpler than the paper ones: it arrives instantly and not postage charge. However, no station barriers accepted the bar code. So allow extra time at stations to wait for the inspectors to open the gates. Very few staff I came across had bar code readers, so you have to hand over your phone for them to read the details. Almost all on ticket inspectors had never heard of the M-pass, both on train and at stations, and I had to explain to to them. In some cases, ticket collectors were puzzled and a couple of times aggressive about it. In one case, a barrier guard angrily refused to let me enter the station as he was convinced it wasn't valid. Eventually, someone from the ticket office came to help and persuaded the man to let me through. But he wasn't completely convinced either, so was lucky not to miss my train. Hopefully, wider use might improve this, but for the moment I'd advise travelling with a printed copy too as backup and a link to the information explaining the ticket for untrained staff.

I booked first class to have more luggage room but didn't know reserving a seat is free ( In Germany it has an additional charge) so for my first trip I was in a a carriage two carriages down from my luggage because the train was so full. I think the reserving information could be provided at booking. Otherwise all was well.

The value is good but advise people to check online and compare advanced ticket prices, which might work out cheaper, if you know the time of your journey. The only issue regarding user Friendliness is at stations with electronic barriers where you have to find a staff member to let you through. Overcrowded trains are the reason I only give Experience Comfort and service a average rating. Thankfully I did go to the station and reserve seats for some of my journeys else I would have ended up standing. Although this may be inconvenient I would advise all uses to do this if they can. I did experience one part of a journey where I was told I was unable to reserve a seat several days in advance, only to find when I bordered the train that most of the seats were reserved for people who bought advanced tickets. I strongly feel you should be allowed to reserve seats on all trains with this pass if reservations are available. On another part of the same journey (I had to change trains) I found the seat I did reserve had no reservation card on it and someone was occupying the seat. To end on a positive note when it comes to public transport nothing beats the trains and it is far less stressful than renting a car.

I will be purchasing Flexi Rail Passes for future trips in UK. It made my travelling so much easier not worrying about risk of missing connecting trains. If I arrived earlier than expected I was able to get earlier train. Highly recommend.

Overall we found the trains an ideal way to travel from London, to Cambridge, to York and then Edinburgh. Our two slightly negative concerns were that as older, somewhat disabled ( we walk with a walker and a cane), and a couple traveling with two weeks worth of luggage, the overall accommodations were not as "handicapped-friendly" as we expected. Some rail staff were very accommodating and helpful, some were not. The luggage space was inadequate at times. There were helpful porters in some cases and no porters in others. Despite of disabilities, we had to handle our own luggage with carts at times. We did manage, but it was NOT "handicapped-friendly" in some cases. Other than that traveling first Class proved a convenience and comfortable...Yes, we'd do it again. DTR

I have used these passes for about 10 years, and I love them!. Although a bit expensive, the service and train timetables are second to none, I always get a 1st class ticket and find them excellent. The service on the trains is really good, from the British breakfasts to the always available food trolleys. I will use them again!

Enjoyed the travels - especially having wifi on most trains. Appreciated the back-up shuttle service when one train was cancelled as we returned from the Orkney Islands. Instructions of what cars to board were vague/confusing leaving Windermere for London; I did not have reserved seats and it was not clear which cars to board. Overall I would do it again.

The purchase of my ticket was easy. The cost compared to what it would cost me on the day is more than satisfactory. The amount of days in a month usage is still a problem with me, as I am obliged to buy what is offered buy the vendor, not what I need. I only used the train 6 days in the month (and given an extra travel day) but was obliged to buy an 8-day Britrail Flexi-Pass. The trains were okay comfort wise, and also on time. However, when they offer lame excuses because there is no food trolley today, and have reduced food on board, it becomes quite frustrating and bloody annoying the more times it happens! I will use the service again as it suits my travel needs when visiting relatives in the UK. John C.

Cannot say enough about the convenience of the BritRail Pass. I used it from September 20 to October 10, 2017 taking a tour of the UK starting in London, then down to Brighton, Bath, and visiting numbers cities up the west coast to Glasgow and then to Edinburgh, down to Berwick, York and finally where I staged myself at an airport hotel and took day trips until I left. I opted for a 1st class consecutive pass and was was glad I did. Early morning trains were met with coffee and in some instances a hot breakfast. On any trip it was nice to relax with a soft drink, or perhaps a cocktail and lunch or snacks before carrying on. I would definitely recommend this form of travel to everyone. We found the station staff very friendly and helpful. My only wish was that the paper ticket could have been substituted for a regular train pass for easier usage, but that was a minor detail in a wonderful trip. I also must commend the rail service on it's cleanliness of bathrooms, whether in the station or on the train I was amazed how sanitary the facilities were.
