    Hi Jasmine. Thank you for your question.

    The BritRail England Pass can be offered in both 'flexi' form and 'consecutive' form.

    A flexipass allows for a set number of travel days, which must be completed within a time frame (that time frame being 1 month in the case of the BritRail England Pass).

    'Travel days' on a flexipass refer to how many separate days you plan on using your rail pass. A rail day is a 24-hour period from midnight to midnight. You may take as many trains as you wish during the 24 hour time frame and still only use one day of travel on a pass. For instance, if you were take a day train from 'city A' to 'city B' and then take a connecting train to 'city C' on the same day, then you would only use up one day of travel on your rail pass. In contrast, if you were to take that connecting train to 'city C' on the next day, then you would use up 2 days of rail travel on your pass.

    In contrast, the consecutive day passes allow for unlimited train travel within a set time frame. For instance, if you were to purchase the 8 day consecutive version of the BritRail England Pass, then you would be entitled to unlimited travel within that time frame of 8 days.

    To be quoted the 'flexi' version of the BritRail England Pass, you would refer to the page on our website for the BritRail England Pass and answer the questions "How many days do you plan to travel by train?" and "Over what period of time will you be traveling?" according to your needs.

    If you wish to have 8 days of rail travel in a month time period, you would choose '8 Days' to "How many days do you plan to travel by train?" and '1 Month' to "Over what period of time will you be traveling?", like so:



    You would know that you're being quoted for the flexi version of the pass if it says 'Validity: 8 Days in 1 Month' in its description after you click to 'Get Prices', like so:
