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.

Great DealHanna ,USASeptember 16, 2013
I got the 4 day flex pass for my UK trip to celebrate graduating college. It is a wonderful price if you are traveling long distances. My trip took me from Edinburgh to Norfolk and eventually back to Reading, and those 2 days alone paid for my train tickets. I never had to worry about the right ticket to buy, I just hopped on the train I needed, sat in any unreserved seat, and went to my destination. And if you ever are worried about not having a seat, you can go to any ticket window and they can reserve one for you for any train on any day. It was the best idea for my trip which I was trying to keep flexible. I will do this every time I go to England and I'm telling all my friends about it.

the best wayBarbara Guay ,CanadaSeptember 10, 2013
I cannot imagine that my daughter and I would have covered so much country with such ease by any other means. The flexi-pass gave us great freedom and allowed us to relax between destinations. I would recommend reserving seats on some of the busier routes as it did take time to find seating.

3 issues with the passGrant Beattie ,CanadaSeptember 10, 2013
3 issues with the pass - 1. UK trains are busy! Do not assume seats are available especially traveling as a family (4 people); the idea of "wait for the next one" (advice in our Brit Rail package) doesn't really work when trains are an hour apart or more. It's a very good idea to reserve, especially on the long hauls 2. Many of the big stations (e.g. Reading) now use entry and exit gates that require either tickets or fare cards to feed into the gate - you need an attendant to open the gates for you when you're using a rail pass 3. We had a bad delay on the Edinburgh to London train - over 1 1/2 hrs late. People who purchased tickets got a full refund. We didn't have any recourse. One comment about British Rail - on both outbound and return on the London-Edinburgh train (East Coast line) there were certain cars with no air conditioning! These are 5-hour+ trains! Very uncomfortable in August.

What a wonderful experienceBruce Muller ,Germany September 10, 2013
It was such a joy riding with a Britrail pass. We got to relax and watch the beauty of England and Scotland roll by our windows. No stress and always on time. We would do it again!!

Fantastic!Richard turner ,Canada.September 09, 2013
We bought the Britrail Flexipass and travelled first class-which is well worth the little extra.The trains are efficient,on time and a great way to see the Uk.We thoroughly enjoyed not having to drive and cant say enough good about the Britrail pass.Dont take any notice of a previous negative Canadian review-he cant even spell "disappointed". We will definitely be buying a Britrail pass again.Enjoy.

Loved itJoshua ,USJuly 09, 2013
I loved my Britrail pass. I got the 8 day and was able to go anywhere and everywhere I wanted. Just pick a train and get on. I started in London and went to Eynsford, Bath, NewCastle, Corbridge, Edinburgh, and back to London. Only once was the seating close on standard class. Great value, great flexibility, great lack of having to worry about transport and could get everywhere I needed, and then either bus or walk from there to my destination.

overall disapointedAl Wright ,CanadaJune 22, 2013
Coming from a country that has a poor rail system, I was looking forward to coming to Britain, where rail seems to be part of the travelling fabric. My first trip started without a hitch. The girl behind the ticket counter saw that I was a little lost and got me all sorted out in no time. Then, after getting underway (about 10 feet) the train came to a stop for twenty minutes ''because the lights in the trailing engine were not on'' Episodes like this happened 4 times on that trip making us just over 1.5 hours late getting in. Coming back there were no seats. This situation occurs in Canada, but they just put on another coach. Not here, no, first class passengers are left to stand in the corridoors for hours at a time with none of the paid for service that comes with the extra ticket price. Eventually I got a seat and tried to connect to the wi-fi to book a room for tbat night... you guessed it, wi-fi not working... Oh well, go to the toilet. Opps that's not working either. Got in late so it took a great deal of foot work and phoning to find an overpriced room for the night Thank you very much!!!! The BritRail pass has a place where you fill in the date of travel. Why the passenger, instead of an approved ticket agent is allowed to fill this in is a mystery. Twice now I have been accused of altering the date, which I had not even considered but I digress. The poor service that I expect at home and the poor design of the tickets will make me think twice about using BritRail again

Rail travel these days in the UK is usually pretty good, and having a railpass certainly gives flexibility as well as economy. There is, however, one issue. On intercity routes a great many seats are booked so railpass holders often have trouble finding a suitable place to sit. It's better in first class - but of course first class is more expensive (and not all trains on secondary routes have first class compartments anyway.
