Britrail England Consecutive Pass : FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I validate my Pass once I get to the UK?
Before boarding your first train in the UK, you must present your Pass and passport at a train station ticket window for validation. When it is presented a train station attendant will enter your passport number, start and end validity dates. DO NOT enter the dates yourself as this is not permitted. In the case of a Flexipass, the passenger must enter the date of travel each day before he/she boards the first train of the day.
What is the difference between Standard and First Class travel?
Standard Class carriages in Britain give you a good quality comfortable seat and the chance to reserve your seat, especially for the long journeys.
First Class carriages are often quieter, offer wider seats, more legroom and less seats per carriage than Standard Class. In some cases First Class services include snacks and drinks at seat and free WiFi. Not all trains in Britain provide First Class.
What is the difference between a Consecutive Pass and a Flexi Pass?
A Consecutive pass is valid for the number of days purchased. A 22 day pass is valid for 22 days in a row, you are not required to travel every day if you do not wish, however you will lose those days and no refund can be issued for unused days.
The Flexi pass allows flexibility of travelling within a 1 month period, i.e. 4 days in 1 month allows you to travel any given 4 days within a 1 month period.
What constitutes a rail day?
For trains: A travel day is midnight to midnight.
A month on a pass is counted as a calendar month. For example, a pass that begins on October 15th, will expire at midnight on November 14th.
