How does the Interrail Great Britain Pass compare with the BritRail and All Line Rover passes?

In most instances, the Interrail Great Britain Pass is better value than the BritRail rail pass. However, this does depend on the length of your trip and the number of days that you will be travelling by train during your stay in the United Kingdom. Both the Interrail Great Britain Pass and BritRail pass are available to European residents (except residents of Great Britain). There are more options with the BritRail pass, including passes specifically for travel in England, southeast England (for day trips from London) and southwest England; however most visitors from Europe will choose the Interrail Great Britain Pass as it is generally better value and also includes travel to and from Great Britain, including travel on the Eurostar from Brussels and Paris to London. If you are a UK-resident, then the only option for travel throughout the United Kingdom is the All Line Rover pass. This is more expensive, but also lets you travel every day during the validity of the rail pass. The All Line Rover is only really recommended for rail enthusiasts who want to travel by rail every day. Most visitors from outside the UK, however, are more likely to travel by rail for four, six or eight days within a one month period and if they do want to travel more than this will usually find it better value to combine the Interrail Great Britain Pass with a regional Rover or Ranger ticket for more extensive travel within a smaller regional area.

How does the Interrail Great Britain Pass compare with Rover passes?

When compared to Ranger and Rover rail passes that are available to British residents, the Interrail Great Britain 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 Interrail Great Britain 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

Of the Rover and Ranger passes, only the All Line Rover pass allows you to travel in southeast England (including to and from London); however, the Interrail Great Britain pass is a better value option as long as you are European resident who does not live in Great Britain.
