Discover Quaint Seaside Towns by the Atlantic with the Britrail South West Flexipass

BritRail South-West FlexiPass BritRail South-West FlexiPass

The BritRail South West Pass allows you travel by rail to the South West of England, an area where the land meets the sea and the fusion has taken many forms.

There are the bustling seaside towns of Bournemouth, Torquay, Weymouth and Weston-Super-Mare, the surf beaches on the north coast of Devon and Cornwall and the Gower Peninsular in South Wales and the quaint fishing ports of Looe and St Ives.

Travel to the far corner of England at Land's End and gaze westwards towards the Scilly Isles and the wide Atlantic Ocean from a land steeped in tales of King Arthur.

The South West is made for exploring and most stations see a train service operating on at least an hourly basis, often far more frequently.

Booking your BritRail South West FlexiPass

The first thing to know about the BritRail South-West Flexipass is that it is only available to non-UK residents. You'll need to show ID when you use it.

The second is that there are different rail tickets available. You can choose between 3, 4, 8 and 15 days of train travel within a one-month period. Discounts are also available for youths, children and seniors.

If you’re an adult travelling in a group of three or more, you can qualify for a discounted Saver Pass and really make the most of those train tickets.

Using your BritRail South West FlexiPass

The BritRail South-West Flexipass can be used on all First Great Western and South West Trains services included in the pass. It can also be used on the Heathrow Express and the Night Riviera Sleeper. In the case of the latter, a berth should be reserved in advance.

Seat Reservations: Reservations for particular journeys are not compulsory, but for busy trains are advisable (ie: mainlines in peak hours.) It is not necessary to validate a pass in order to reserve a seat / sleeping berth in advance. Normal fees are payable.

First Class and Standard Class: Many local trains in England, Scotland and Wales have Standard Class accommodation only. This has been accounted for in price of the First Class Passes.

Exclusions: The BritRail pass is not valid on Eurostar services, special excursions, Tyne and Wear Metro Trains (Newcastle-upon-Tyne area), Glasgow Underground trains, Manchester Metro link, road links between airports and railway stations, Docklands Light Railway, Tram links, privately owned railways, steam services, London Underground trains and buses, ships, hovercraft, nor any other services not mentioned.

Pass Validation: Passes are issued open dated and must be validated within 11 months from the date of issue and prior to the first use. To validate a rail pass, present it along with your passport to the Railway official at the station of departure. At this time, the first and the last day of validity of the pass as well as the passport number is entered and the passenger must sign the pass. Under no circumstances is the pass holder allowed to validate his or her own pass. If, however, your first journey is from an unstaffed station, your pass will be valid provided you take it to be validated at the next interchange station, or at your destination station. 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. BritRail Passes are valid from 00:00 hrs to 24:00 hrs (Midnight to Midnight) on a chosen day of travel. If a pass holder is travelling on an overnight train containing sleeper accommodation, the next day’s date must be inserted. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in the payment of a fine and the cost of a full fare ticket.

Prices: BritRail reserves the right to change prices without notice whether such changes are related or not to alterations in the rates of exchange.

Refunds will be granted if: The unvalidated Pass or original exchange coupon or voucher is returned to the office from which it was purchased within 11 months from the date of issue, (unless a different time period is specified by your travel agent). Passes or tickets must bear no evidence of having been tampered with in any way. No refund can be made in Britain. No refund can be made if the Pass or Ticket cannot be produced. Refunds are not given on validated Passes once the commencement date has been reached.

Where a Pass forms part of an inclusive Tour Package, it is not separately refundable. Where no other cancellation charges are specified by travel agent, the cancellation charge will be a minimum of 15%. Special offers are not refundable. Neither the Participating Operators nor their Agents can accept any responsibility for any failure in the provision of any special offers included. Refunds should not be returned to the Freepost address listed on this ticket cover but to the agent you originally purchased it through. Seat and Sleeper reservations are non refundable.

Lost Tickets: BritRail is not responsible for tickets or vouchers, which are lost, stolen, mutilated or destroyed. Refunds cannot be authorized in such cases. Therefore, travel insurance or ticket protection is recommended.
