Overall, I would highly recommend train travel and Brit Rail passes for touring England. Use of the application to see train schedules, gate info and other info was extremely handy. WiFi connectivity on different trains was a bit variable but functional. Trains were punctual and staff helpful and friendly. Access to outlets for charging devices was also dependent on the age of train you happen to get. The train that we took from Gloucester to London was the most modern, clean, comfortable and accommodating. Even the toilets were relatively clean!

The Examined LifeJuly 27, 2018
These rail passes can't be beaten for convenience, flexibility, and value for money. I've used the Flexi Pass in England several times and it's been a great experience. At the U.S. end, I've found the information on this web site to be accurate and complete, and the actual pass has been delivered into my hands very quickly. When traveling in England, most of the time I only have to show the pass envelope to the station staff or conductor, and I'm good to go. I've never had a problem getting a seat in the 1st Class carriages and the free tea-coffee-snack trolley is a bonus. You do have to get the pass stamped at a station ticket office before your first ride, and you should fill in the dates of usage in the provided places on the pass in case you run across someone who's a stickler for the rules. I highly recommend this to you.

Good value, easy to use, saves the headache of buying a ticket each time. Railway staff facilitate getting through the turnstiles. Important though to get your pass validated by the info desk or ticket counter staff before getting on your first train.

We really enjoyed the 'freedom' of having a Brit Rail pass. We didn't need to commit way in advance to particular times and destinations. Once we were in the U.K., though, and knew what we'd need, we were able to make reservations for most trips at one of the offices located in major tube stations in London. Sometimes trains were crowded and reservations went by the wayside, but that was okay. The reservation system is a bit hit-and-miss. Travellers should be aware that if they reserve for a table, they may have to share (two seats facing two seats) if the train is crowded. But other times it's great -- you can spread out a bit and write postcards! It's hard to determine value because train trip prices vary. Our passes, for 8 non-consecutive days over one month, cost $775 Cdn for two seniors. We used just seven days. We really liked the convenience of just showing our passes and not having to bother with purchasing tickets. Our feeling overall was positive -- one less thing to worry about while getting from place to place.

I enjoyed my trip to Bath, Truro and London. taking Britrail was most comfortable and convenient. The fares are lower when taking for 3 or more trips. I bought it in the US and in London just checked for the first trip and after that just showed the ticket in each train. What is best is the punctuality, you know they come and go right "on Time" It was a great experience and I will always use Britrail when I travel in the UK !! First class was so comfortable and not crowed at all, plus have complementary beverages and snacks. Just wish they had more and better selection of snacks, which will improve the service !!

My brother and I went on a hiking trip to Cotswolds. The 3 day flexpass worked great. It took care of the more expensive trips to and from Heathrow Airport as well as a trip from Bath to Cheltenham. Even paid for express bus from Woking to the Airport. Not having to go through the ticket buying process was a great time and energy saver. I have used this kind of rail pass in past and it has great value.

South West Saver PassBarbora ,SlovakiaMay 02, 2015
We have used the 3-day BritRail South West Saver Pass (for 4 people). We have comfortably seen much of the country and the travelling was hassle-free indeed. For a moment we were not quite sure if we can board a Crosscountry train with our railpass. However, the staff were so helpful and the issue was solved within minutes. Overall, out UK trip was very enjoyable. The railpass made it much easier.
