  • 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 traveling 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.
