Great Scot!Everette Williams ,USAJune 30, 2014
Must say our first trip across the pond was just wonderful! Thanks to friendly company staff and on board train personnel. First class was great way to receive your first class service. Timely arrival and departure made seeing the country side even more enjoyable. Thanks for making our trip to Scotland and London the best ever!

Worth EVERY penny!Jayne Cooper ,CanadaJune 30, 2014
This is the third year I have purchased a BritRail Pass. It is very convenient. I order it online and I receive it within 3 days. I was able to catch any train within Great Britain. I usually travel from Preston to Scotland, Preston to Wales and Preston to London, or Preston to York. I usually have to transfer at another station and I have never had an issue with my tickets. All train companies recognize the ticket. When you first go to the train station you go to the ticket booth and the authorize your pass with a stamp and you can start using it. You just hop on the train you want , when the conductor comes by to check your ticket the writes the date and you are good for that whole day. This is an amazing deal also. When I calculated the cost of buying the tickets individually at the station and my ticket I purchased from ACP Rail I saved over $200. Definitely worth it!!! Thanks so much!

Bang for Your Buck!Jessica Maunder ,AustraliaJune 30, 2014
The BritRail Pass was amazing. I only paid $700 AUD for this ticket which covered the whole three weeks I was in the UK. By halfway through my trip, I was already profiting from buying this pass. A trip which would have cost me $320 all up was covered by this rail pass. Most train companies accepted this pass, only obscure train companies in Scotland would not have accepted it. Buying this pass for my trip was one of the best things I ever did.

Great Value Easy to UseBen Reynolds ,USAJune 28, 2014
Almost always cheaper to buy a Britrail Pass than to buy individual tickets. You can also make reservations for a specific train, if you're sure you'll make it on time. I don't do that. I just hop on the next train going where I want -- usually north to York or south to Kings Cross. The WiFi varies with who owns the train, from 15 minutes of too slow to do anything (!) to lots of time to do anything. The Virgin trains seem too small side to side for my comfort, but all the others have ample seats and good overhead storage space (the bag rags at the end of each car tend to fill up quickly). I've been using British rail since the 80's, and I've had only one train breakdown (on the way to Manchester in York station). I wish they'd bring back smoking cars, but otherwise everything just works fine.

Brit Rail PassCathie Dunklee-Donnell ,CanadaJune 26, 2014
I liked how easy it was to get on the train and go quickly to my destination. However once I was on the train, I was never sure of what I was supposed to do and needed more guidance and help. When I tried to find a seat most were reserved, and it was hard to find one that was free. It seemed many of the reserved seats were never occupied for the whole of the trip, however. The toilets seemed to be locked or out of service and I couldn't find one to use. I wasn't sure where to put my luggage since the luggage storage areas were often too full. I also was confused if I were allowed to sit in first class and how to arrange to sit there. I wished there were more staff to help and tell you how things work and where to sit. For the amount of money I paid, there should be better service and at least people to answer questions. I liked looking out at the scenery.

So ConvenientKyra ,CanadaJune 26, 2014
Taking the train in the UK is generally expensive, but the pass did make it a bit cheaper. It was super convenient, you just show your pass and get on any train. I would definitely recommend the pass if you're taking many trains as it just makes it easier.

The Way to See Britainmary ,usaJune 26, 2014
My mom (mid-80's) and a friend and I traveled through Britain using the BritRail pass and it was a terrific way to see Britain. The trains are comfortable, very quiet and smooth. The customer service was excellent and we never had any problems except once at the first of our trip, when we were trying to get off at a small station and did not realize you needed to push a button to open the door. We couldn't get off! Nevertheless, the next stop was only a few minutes away. Before getting to Britain, I had been concerned about my mom (80's) getting to the platform, finding the right train/right car and getting on and off. Everything went well. The trains were perfectly on time and station staff was super at helping us find where we needed to be, advising us of how to find a seat (the one time we didn't have seat reservations). I do suggest seat reservations.

Mostly excellent experiencesW. Russell ,USAFebruary 19, 2014
I've been using Britrail Flexipasses for 8 or 9 years and find them useful but you have to use a bit of planning. I get the first class pass and is annoying using trains south and west of London that don't have first class but that's not the fault of Britrail. What I've started doing after almost missing a train once is to take my pass to a rail station on my first day in London to have it validated PLUS get reservations for my upcoming rail trips. The website charges you $12 per reservation but they're free at the stations. As early as possible is good but they can still be made up to one hour before the train leaves it's originating station. Highly recommended. I do not recommend the insurance as it doesn't help while you're overseas and is a lot of hassle for a partial refund.

Don't leave home for the UK without itJohn Grimley ,CanadaNovember 03, 2013
As an ex-Brit living in Canada, I often asked for advice when people plan to visit the UK. "We're going to rent a car at the airport and tour round for a week" is a common comment. In a word: don't. The idea of the one road that we know well in North America is virtually nonexistent in the UK. You'll spend an exasperating time in traffic jams, which are ubiquitous in Britain. Car rentals are pricey, especially for the size of car we are used to and gasoline is around double the price we pay. When in North America we think car or plane when it comes to travel. In Britain (and the rest of Europe) think train or plane. Forget the car. Take the train and get a chauffeur automatically. Trains over there are frequent, fast and very often friendly, as you have time to interact with other travelers. Lastly, by buying the right rail pass, before you leave home, means you can go anywhere the pass covers, at any time. It's a great feeling to know you have the country at your feet when holding a rail pass. If I am in the UK for more than a couple of days, I invariably buy a rail pass. ; it is an incredibly cost-effective and flexible way to get around. Here endeth the lesson.

Pleased with BritrailMarilyn ,AustraliaOctober 04, 2013
I purchased my Britrail South West Pass online and at the time also reserved my seats for the London-Penzance and later Penzance-London journeys. My journey to Penzance was on a Bank Holiday weekend so it was good that I had the seat reservation as the train was very crowded but pleasant. For the trip back to London 10 days later I chose the Quiet Carriage which was not such a good idea as it was anything but quiet, in fact I would say it was noisier than the crowded carriage on the earlier trip. Nothing was done about the noisy American women and their very noisy card games that continued through the whole trip. Some of us had asked staff to try and get these ladies to quieten down. Also there was a woman using a computer very noisily, even though the gentleman travelling opposite her had asked her to stop as it was interfering with his hearing aids. She did finally turn it off (and then admitted that she was an audiologist, to which he said that she should have known better). I used the third day of my Pass to travel to Bath and return. This was a really good experience and the service was great as well. I will purchase another Pass when visiting the UK next time.
