How does the BritRail pass compare with Rover passes?

When compared to Ranger and Rover rail passes that are available to UK residents, the BritRail pass is generally a more convenient option particularly if you’re basing yourself in London or elsewhere in southeast England as most Ranger and Rover passes do not cover travel in and out of London. However Rover passes may be better value if your trip is restricted to a region outside southeast England and your trip does not involve travelling to or from London.

The BritRail pass has the following advantages over most Rover passes:

  • Includes travel to and from London (most Rover passes do not include travel to and from London)
  • Includes travel in southeast England (most Rover passes do not include travel in southeast England)
  • Includes travel on long-distance trains allowing you to cross the UK in a single day (most Rover passes only cover a specific part of the country so long distance travel is only possible when combining several passes).
  • Includes travel on airport express trains

Only the All Line Rover pass allows you to travel in southeast England (including to and from London), however the BritRail pass is a better value option as long as you are not a UK resident.

Some travellers find the best value to combine a BritRail England, BritRail South West or BritRail London Plus pass with a regional Rover rail pass, although this is best if you spend the night in a town or city where the coverage areas of both passes meet.
