    Changed reply in topic of Ancona to Patras by Ferry by Jeff to Hi Lidya,<br /><br />The rule to which you're referring (the '7pm rule') actually does not apply to ferries. Therefore, the ferry from Ancona to Patras would only require you to use 1 'day of travel' on your pass (for overnight ferries, you can use the date of departure or the date of arrival as your 'travel day', whichever is more convenient for you.)<br /><br />If you wish to have an actual sleeping cabin this ferry, a reservation would be required at an additional cost. With the rail pass, reservations for sleeping cabins would have to be made by contacting the ferry companies directly. The website for 'Superfast Ferries' is <a href="http://www.superfast.com" rel="nofollow">www.superfast.com</a>. For a ferry out of Ancona, you would make reservations by calling them at +39 071 202 033-4 or +39 071 207 0218, or else by sending an email to <a href="mailto:info.anconaport@superfast.com" rel="nofollow">info.anconaport@superfast.com</a>.<br /><br />There are also additional surcharges for these ferries. These include a seasonal surcharge in June and September of €10 per person and €20 per person in June and July, port taxes of €7 per person, and a fuel surcharge may also apply.<br /><br />Please note, it is advised that passengers be at the port 2 hours prior to departure to check-in and receive your boarding your pass. Check-in closes 30 minutes before the ferries depart..

    Changed reply in topic of How do I acquire a family pass on Britrail? WE are an extended family, 2 seniors, 2 adults, 4 children aged 6-13. by Jeff to Hi Christine,<br /><br />With the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/britrail-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">BritRail Pass</a>, the free child offer is only valid when the adult and/or senior passengers are booked at the regular adult/senior rates.<br /><br />If you search for the 4 adult passengers by themselves (2 adults and 2 seniors) and indicate that you all will be traveling together at all times, the rate you will be quoted is a discounted rate called the 'Saver' rate.<br /><br />Once you add the child passengers, the total you see will not factor in a 'Saver' rate for the adults and seniors (since the free child offer is only valid when the adult and/or senior passengers are booked at the regular adult/senior rates). Instead, the total in this case would reflect the regular rates for adults and seniors..
