  • 1. Description

    London is a fantastic city to travel through and spend time in – but it’s not the only desirable destination in southern England. With the BritRail London Plus Pass, you can enjoy all kinds of exciting day-trips. Visit Cambridge to try your hand at punting and tour the historic university buildings, journey out to Bristol to experience the artsy café scene, or enjoy a beach day at Eastbourne, Southend or Brighton. Wherever you go, you’ll find history, culture, art and plenty of good pubs!

    Booking your London Plus Pass
    When you book your pass through International Rail you have the opportunity to tailor your ticket to your exact needs and budget. Start by choosing between travelling first or second class, and then decide how many travel days you will require within a one-month period (3, 4 or 8). Over the period of four weeks, you can use your travel days at any point and you can take unlimited trains on that day, which is very convenient for longer journeys.

    Just don’t forget that these kinds of rail tickets are only available to non-UK residents – and you will be expected to present ID whenever you use it.

    Using your London Pass
    The BritRail London Plus Pass can be used in place of individual train tickets on a variety of different services in the south east of England. Not only can you travel as far as Bath, Bristol, Stratford-upon-Avon, Weymouth and the Isle of Wight, you can also travel on certain services within London itself. These London services include the Overground and the airport trains for Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted (provided you use them on your designated travel days).

  • 2. Eligibility

    Pass holders must be non-UK residents. BritRail and its representatives may ask at any time for proof of foreign residency and reserve the right to confiscate the ticket or pass in such circumstances.

  • 5. Validity

    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.
