Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living outside the participating countries can use the Balkan Flexipass.

Seat reservation

A seat reservation is a guaranteed seat on board a train.

Seat reservations are compulsory for high speed, international and night trains. However, as you will be travelling with a rail pass, you will only have to pay for a small reservation fee, as opposed to the usual standard fare.

Seats are generally available for reservation up to 90 days prior to departure and are limited. Book early to secure your seat!
We are not currently offering online seat reservations for high speed, international and night trains covered by the BritRail passes.You can book your seat reservation directly from train stations once you are in the United Kingdom.

Our tip:
Most regional trains do not require a seat reservation. Just hop on board with a valid rail pass, find a seat and relax as the train takes you to one of the many destinations served.

How to use a rail pass?

To use your rail pass for the first time, you have to go to any train station in Europe. A railway official will write down your passport number on the rail pass and stamp it. Don’t forget to write down the date of travel on your rail pass.
Please ensure that all the above information is reflected on your rail pass. An unstamped rail pass or incomplete travel information can lead to a fine and payment of a full fare ticket.

Travel day

A travel day starts from midnight and ends at midnight the next day. It lasts 24 hours. During that period, you can take as many trains as you want.

Our tip:
You can get a free travel day with the 7 PM rule when the four conditions below are met:

  • Your rail pass should be activated by a rail official.
  • You must travel on board a night train which departs after 7 pm, and this trip should be the first one you are taking during that day.
  • You must reach your destination no later than 4 am on the following day.
  • The arrival date must be within the validity of your rail pass.
When all conditions are met, you just have to write down the arrival date on your rail pass instead of the departure date. Thus you save a day of travel.


The validity is the number of travel days of a rail pass.

For a rail pass with a validity of 5 days within 1 month. If you activate your rail pass on the 1st of the month, you can travel on the 3rd, 4th, 7th, 12th and 30th of this month.
