HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR BRITRAIL PASS: NEARLY 50 PERCENT SAVINGS ON HISTORIC TRIP THROUGH ENGLAND AND SCOTLAND

 NEW YORK, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- BritRail Travel is offering tips on how savvy travelers may get the most value from their BritRail Pass, which offers unlimited rail travel in England, Scotland and Wales.
 For example, a traveler with an eight-day BritRail Pass can save nearly 50 percent in rail costs on a spectacular eight-day scenic and historic rail journey through England and Scotland (compared to unrestricted point-to-point costs riding the same trains to the same cities).
 "This `land cruise' is for the ambitious traveler with a penchant for history, scenery and the joy of riding the trains," says Tim Roebuck, president of BritRail Travel in North America.
 "Not only does the traveler get stunning views of the countryside, particularly from Inverness to the Kyle of Lochalsh, but stopovers in York and Chester, with their well-preserved medieval walls, bring rich tradition right into the present."
 British Rail's high-speed InterCity trains traveling at speeds up to 125 mph provide the conduit to the adventure. Each leg, ranging from two to 5-1/2 hours in length, offers a front row seat to Britain's ever- changing landscape.
 The "ports of call" for this full-circle journey originating and ending in London include Exeter, York, Edinburgh, Inverness, Kyle of Lochalsh, Mallaig, Glasgow and Chester.
 Unrestricted point-to-point tickets for this circular itinerary could cost as much as US$410 -- almost more than twice the US$219 price of the eight-day Standard Class BritRail Pass.
 "And this itinerary, of course, is only one in a virtually unlimited number of tailor-made options available via a BritRail Pass," adds Roebuck.
 BritRail Travel International Inc., the North American subsidiary of British Rail, offers Americans who pre-purchase on this side of the Atlantic several money-saving travel options that are not available in Britain.
