Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living outside the participating countries can use the BritRail Pass. Please note that residents of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales are not eligible.

Seat reservation

To travel on board high speed and night trains, you need to book a seat reservation.

Seat reservations are compulsory on most premium trains and are a guarantee to get a seat or a sleeping berth. As a pass holder, you will only be charged a fraction of the usual standard fare.

In most cases, you can reserve your seat up to 90 days in advance. Don’t wait too long to book your seat. They are limited!
Book a seat reservation with Rail Europe.

Our tip:
As an alternative to high speed and night trains, you can travel on board regional trains. Most don’t require a seat reservation when you have a rail pass so you won’t have to pay any extra charge. Just sit back and relax!

What is a Saver pass discount?

A Saver pass discount allows families or groups of 3 to 9 people travelling together to get a discount.

How to use a rail pass?

It is required that you start using your rail pass within 6 months of the date of purchase.

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.

Validity

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

You can choose between flexible and consecutive validities.

Flexible validities allow you to choose which days you want to travel within the period covered by your rail pass.
E.g. 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.

Consecutive validities give you unlimited travel during consecutive days.
E.g. For a rail pass with a validity of 3 days continuous. By activating your rail pass on the 1st of the month, you can use it until the 3rd.

Rail pass benefits

Most rail passes include discounts and bonuses. Save money and make the most of your trip with your rail pass.
When available you will get hotel discounts, free entrance to museums, discounted boat trips and more.

  • "Fantastic"

      Stephanie g. 
    We had no problems using the britrail pass. And we found out how much each trip would have cost separately so we definitely saved money with our britrail. We didn't have to reserve a seat and pay extra even when we chose to reserve a seat. The only criticism I have is the form the pass comes in. A piece of paper is really easily damaged and not convenient to carry around as it is in a large envelope type thing. A card or a smaller, more durable ticket would be a better and more manageable item to carry around, especially for those travelling for a long time.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Around the UK by train"

      Beron a.  15/08/2013
    Five weeks travelling around the UK by train using an "any fifteen days in two months" first class BritRail Pass was brilliant. Covered the UK from end-to-end (Penzance to Wick) and side-to-side (Porthmadog to Lowestoft) The convenience of having a rail pass means you can pick any train and just jump on, no booking and no hassle. The best way to see the UK    Value for money  Convenience
