Are there special passes for children?

Yes, there are. With some passes (BritRail, England, and South-West passes), for every adult buying a full price ticket, one child (aged 5 to 15) receives a pass of the same type and duration for free. They will still need a pass (but it will show a zero price) so it is very important that you let us know at time of booking if there are children travelling with you, even if they are entitled to a child rate. You must enter the child details at the bottom of the page in order to get the free pass.

Additional children will be charged at the normal child rate, which is around 50% of the standard adult price. For example, if there is 1 adult travelling with 2 children, 1 of the children will travel for free and the other will travel at the child rate. However, if there are 2 adults and 2 children, both children will travel for free.

Children aged 0 – 4 years old do not need a pass if they will not be taking up a seat (i.e. they will sit on the parent’s lap during the journey). If you need a separate seat for your child/ren, then you will need a child pass.

If booking seats, seat reservations and accompanying segment fees are payable per child, as with adult tickets.
