Customer feedback Britrail Pass - value for $$$
« No more worries for tickets. Juz ask then hop up the train. The only negative about the pass is that there is no direct train covered by the pass from Paddington to Salisbury. So in the end, we took a cab to Waterloo in order to travel to Salisbury. The timetable from Britrail website is very accurate, so print out timetable before travel. »
