Rail card for staycations

Coronavirus Crisis

A RAIL pass for domestic tourism is to be launched later this year. The initiative is part of a plan to reboot Britain’s tourist industry and encourage people to holiday in all four nations of the UK by making it cheaper to travel. It will be similar to BritRail passes which give overseas visitors unlimited train travel around the country. They range from £96 for two days to £568 for a month, according to retailer Trainline, and also give discounted entry to tourist attractions. The move will come as a boost to Britons looking to book ‘staycations’ amid ongoing uncertainty around international travel. Tourism minister Nigel Huddleston said: ‘The Tourism Recovery Plan is our blueprint for how the sector can build back better from the pandemic, even faster than forecasts predict. I encourage everyone to rediscover the UK’s fantastic tourism offer.’
