    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. "

    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. "
