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

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.

  • "UK Holiday"    
    Excellent service. Trains on time and comfortable. Highly recommended.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Seeing Britain stressfree"    
    My wife and I travelled to Britain in September and once again purchased our Britrail passes before travelling to the UK. We travelled by train from London to Glasgow, several day trips to Edinburgh from Glasgow, and then to London via Edinburgh. The passes also allowed us to just "pop on a train"on a whim and head off for a day trip or new destination. These trips are so easy using the Britrail pass. The convenience of the pass gives great freedom to explore. All trains were comfortable and well presented. The passes are a must in our travel documents and well worth the money.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Britrail pass"    
    With the exception of my journey from Edinburgh to Inverness all trips made were on time and comfortable particularly Virgin trains from Inverness to London    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fantastic"    
    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"    
    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
