NEW YORK, NEW YORK - MARCH 26, 2009 - The BritRail (Consecutive Day) Pass or the BritRail FlexiPass opens the door to all of England, Scotland and Wales; the BritRail England Pass and the BritRail England Flexipass allow unlimited access to England. Now, both of these popular products are available to Americas and Far East travellers in a shorter, even more affordable, 3 day version - for those who feel the urge for a quick trip across the pond. Britain is so much more than London and with high speed trains and a BritRail Pass, even 3 days will give you a chance to explore further than ever before.
Use the new redesigned www.BritRail.com website to order the new 3 Day BritRail Pass or any of BritRail's economical travel bargains, so that you can take advantage of those last minute vacation deals to Britain without a worry about booking individual ground transportation options. The BritRail Pass is valid on the Airport Express Trains between Heathrow Airport or Gatwick Airport or Stansted Airport and London, as well as 19,000 other daily train departures.
Prices for the 3 day BritRail Consecutive Day Pass start at just $199US in standard class; a reasonable $255US buys a bit more flexibility: the 3 day BritRail FlexiPass allows travel on any (non consecutive) 3 days within a 2-month period. Traveling with a British friend who resides in Britain? The BritRail Guest Pass offers a 25% discount on your pass and your traveling companion's, bringing the cost down still further to $115US and $155US respectively. Who could afford to ignore this bargain?
Flying into Heathrow Airport? Hop onto the Heathrow Express with the all-access 3 day BritRail FlexiPass (trains run 4 times an hour). Fifteen minutes later, hop off at London's Paddington Station. Check the departure board and catch one of the twice-hourly trains to Cardiff, capital of Wales. It's just 2 hours from London, but Wales is a world apart. Based in Cardiff, take a quick train ride to Swansea, Dylan Thomas' birthplace or perhaps explore the traditional seaside town of Tenby - even in winter the views are breathtaking. The experience is sure to leave you wanting more. Then it's back to Cardiff and on to Heathrow Airport for the flight home.
But introducing the new 3 Day BritRail Pass is not the only action BritRail is taking to make rail travel more attractive and affordable. Clients who book any BritRail Pass product between March 9, 2009 and May 31, 2009 will automatically be enrolled in BritRail's Income Loss Cancellation Guaranty Program, protecting them against cancellation fees (normally about 15%) should they need to cancel their trip and return their BritRail Pass for refund due to involuntary unemployment or self-employed personal bankruptcy within 6 months of purchasing the BritRail Pass.
