Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living outside the participating countries can use the Britrail England 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!
Book a seat reservation with Rail Europe.

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.

What is a Saver Pass?

A Saver Pass is a single pass listing the names of all people travelling together. It is offered to families or groups of 3 to 9 people.
  • Adults usually get a 20% discount with a Saver Pass.
  • Remember, children can travel for free with an adult. See conditions below.
  • Child concessions

    Children under 5 travel for free. Do not include them in your booking as they don’t need a rail pass. However if you want them to have a guaranteed seat on board high speed trains or a bed on board night trains, you must make a reservation before travelling.

    Children from 5 to 15 travel. Free travel limited to 1 child when accompanied by an adult who is a holder of a valid BritRail Pass.
    As a rail pass will still be issued for the child, please make sure you include him/her in your booking.
    All additional children aged 5 to 15 will benefit from a discounted fare.

How to use a rail pass?

You must start using your rail pass within 6 months of the date of purchase.

To start using your rail pass, go to a European railway station where a railway official will fill-in your passport number and stamp your rail pass. On each travel day, please remember to write down the date on your rail pass.
Passengers travelling without having written down the above information risk a fine and payment of a full fare ticket.

Travel day

A travel day lasts 24 hours from midnight to midnight.You can take as many trains as you want during a travel day.

Our tip:
The 7 pm rule allows you to benefit from a free travel day if the following conditions are met:

  • Your pass should be activated.
  • You must travel on board a night train departing after 7 pm and this should be your first trip of the day.
  • You must reach your destination after 4 am on the next day.
  • Your arrival date should be within the validity of the pass.
If the conditions are met, write the arrival date on your pass instead of the departure date. This will allow you to save one travel day.


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.

  • "So Easy"

    It is great to be able to hop on and off trains without having too much trouble. It is only when trains have been cancelled and its the commuters' rush hour that there is something of a scrum for seats, even in !st class, which can be anywhere on the length of the train. So despite it no being perfect it is still worth the money for the convenience of not having to queue for a specific ticket.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great choice"

    the train package gave us the flexibility to travel all around UK, at anytime, and this was really useful. The train condition was good, definitely a better choice than bus.  
  • "A tube station interview"

    The realisation that the London Underground was not part of the parcel was a little bit of a surprise. I am aware it was on/in the terms and conditions. I am, not blaming anyone but for a visitor maybe a white hole or portion in your map may be a better signal to ticket buyers. Most people end up in London or pass through it.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "My experience with Rail Europe"

    This is for the second time i traveled with rail Europe. As usual the booking was very simple and the journey was enjoyable. It is very comfortable, the trains are on time and you love to see countryside which you would not have enjoyed from plain. Next time i planned the tour i will surely prefer rail Europe. Again a Big Thanks!!!
