GB Heritage Pass, cannot get one?

HELP! We are leaving in 6 weeks for London, and have spent sevral hours this week trying to purchase Heritage Passes. Every site we try (even either gives one rate on one page & then a different quote once you start the process, or else it leads nowhere! We've tried "contact us", but after we type our question & hit "submit", nothing happens! Where exactly has anyone purchased a GBHP, and do you recall what you paid? This is so frustrating!

Thanks so much.

I called the U.S. number (800-327-6097 WEEKDAYS 10 -3, Eastern) when I had some questions, so if I were you I'd try that number first. All the sites I've accessed quote a price of $75 for a seven-day pass and $95 for a 15-day pass. The number above lists a $13 handling fee.

Apparently you can also purchase your pass once you arrive in London. Check out for more information.

In addition to the above, this link to also works. Prices the same as quoted above but there's a $15 shipping charge.

This link also has 2005 price information:

Why not save the shipping fee and buy your pass when you get to London? The Britain and London Visitors Centre is easy to find (1 Regent Street) and in an area you'll likely be touring anyway. They have a super selection of guides and maps. Open on Sunday too.

If you purchase your GBHP in the UK, make sure you all have your passorts with you when you make the purchase. You need to prove you aren't a UK resident.

I haven't priced them this year, but we purchased one last year and got the best price here:

I don't know what browser you are using, but your frustrations sound much like mine recently in trying to book UK rail tickets. I found that I could not use my normal Mac browser, Safari, but had to use Internet Explorer to complete a transaction.

So I'd suggest if you aren't using IE, try that, and also turn off any popup blockers, as they also can interfere with some sites.

You can also buy them over the phone at RailEurope (BritRail USA) at 1-888-274-8724.

Have you tried

You can wait until you get there of course and save the handling/shipping costs - but then you don't have the catalog ahead of time to help plan your journey. You can buy them in the tourist office right at LHR before you get on the tune into London (but you can't buy them at LGW)
