BritRail Pass Seat Reservation Cost

Jump to last reply

I am still trying to decide whether or not to buy a BritRail Pass for our (4 of us) upcoming trip to Scotland. We will have 2 main legs by train – London to Edinburgh (best price I found is 66.5GBP pp); and Liverpool to London (best price I have found is 81.4 GBP pp). We will have other train rides (London-Cambridge return; Edinburg-Leuchars (St. Andrews) return; and there may be other day trips (most of our travel in Scotland will be by car).
Based on the prices that I have found, the 2 legs will cost around 148 GBP or about $310 CDN pp. A 3 Day Flexi Pass will cost about $310 CDN pp … meaning that our 2 trips will be paid for with the 3 day pass.
Questions are: do we need to reserve seats from London-Edinburgh (traveling on a Saturday morning)? If so, what does it cost to reserve a seat?
Thanks for your input.
