Train Reservations


Reservations
The easiest, convenient and most stress free way to travel is to reserve a seat in advance of travel.
 
Making Seat Reservations in advance

Seat Reservations can be made in advance through one of our BritRail Suppliers ACP Rail. Their reservation page allows you to book seat reservations in advance for a small fee and gives you the peace of mind you will be on the train you require and if travelling with two or more people, that you will be seated near eachother.

 

Making Seat Reservation at a station

Alternatively, you can make seat reservations at any National Rail ticket office free of charge when in Britain. Many customers do this as soon as they arrive Britain for whichever day they need their reservation for? There is, however, an element of risk if leaving it until you arrive as high-speed trains can get very busy and even full at peak times, or even outside of peak when there are special events on (for example the East Coast route London-York-Edinbugh.) So we would recommend obtaining at least your high-speed InterCity reservations in advance of travelling to Britain to guarantee your space on the trains you want and that you are sitting near to each other if travelling with two or more people together.
 
When making a reservation at the station before your travel date, you will need to present your BritRail Pass as proof you hold a valid ticket but will not need to validate it, unless you are travelling that day or it has started already.

 

Making Sleeper Reservations
