Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living in a non-European country can use the Germany - Switzerland Pass. Please note that residents of Russia and Turkey 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.

  • "Convenient"    
    I prefer travelling by train as the trains run on time and you don't have to be at the train station 3 hours before (like you do at the airport). Also you are right in the centre of town when you arrive as compared to the airport. It's really a much more convenient way to travel    Value for money  Convenience
  • "all was well until...."    
    Used the pass to travel from Zurich to Lindau ( switzerland - germany ) After boarding the train the conductor advised us that we have to pay an additional fee because for TWO MINUTES we are travelling through Austria. An additional SFR 42 per person was the cost . I think in the future you should advise purchasers that they should check carefully in case their train strays for a very short distance into a country which is not included in the pass
