Should I get a Britrail pass and cost of seat reservation


I will be travelling between England, Scotland

London -> Edinburgh

Edinburgh -> Inverness

Inverness -> Glasgow

London <-> Cambridge

London <-> Windsor

London <-> Bath

With the above, I am looking at the 8 days within a month britrail pass. However, would it be worth to use the pass or point to point train tickets?

In addition, what are the prices for seat reservation and which portion of the travel do I need to make reservation for seats based on the above?

If I purchase the britrail pass from Raileurope, it will be sent to my email for printout and I can use this printout for rail travel or do I need to activate / exchange it at the rail office in UK?

Thank you

Hello Enzo,

Thanks for your question.

Yes you can buy the Britrail Pass.

Pass will be delivered to your shipping address, passes are not printable. On board you will have to carry those paper tickets only.

As fares are dynamic and subject to change, we unfortunately, cannot give fare quotations. All available fares are displayed on our website. It would be best if you check directly on our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "seat reservation" when using your rail pass & then feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

In order to book a pass, please visit our website.

Hope this helps!!!
