Thanks for the advice! However, I guess it's a bit late now to plan something.. only 30 minutes left, I will leave that for another time. Always good to know tips like that though!

It's really a very good deal. Can fly to Manchester, steal my sisters car and get back to the civilised world.

Do Swiss even let you.....check a bag in for no extra cost?

If you've bought the plane tix, and are thinking of going over for the Royal Wedding, you might be keen to take advantage, whilst you are still abroad, to get a deal on the Brit Rail pass - an extra day for free. Can be used during the purchase period from today 1st April ( no joke sir ) to 29th April, or used up to 6 months later.

Can also benefit a UK resident as a guide ( typically UK residents cannot buy this Brit Rail which is loosely like a GA / Tageskarte )

Prices and booking from Visit Britain here

Extra day can be useful to go along Britain's ( and arguably the most scenic route ever ) West Highland Line. The line was voted the top rail journey in the world by readers of independent travel magazine Wanderlust in 2009, ahead of the iconic Trans-Siberian and the Cuzco to Machu Picchu line in Peru.

A Royal Gift from BritRail / Explore Even More of Britain With an Extra Travel Day


MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/29/11 -- As Britain is a-buzz with excitement leading up to William and Kate's Royal Wedding to be held on April 29th, BritRail is pleased to join in the celebrations by giving away a "Royal Gift", in the form of a FREE travel day on select BritRail passes.



BritRail marries very nicely with any UK trip, as once you've had your fill of downtown London, you can hop aboard any train to your destination of choice throughout England, Scotland and Wales.



For example, other hot cities to include on your itinerary may include Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Cardiff, where each stop offers up a unique list of attractions, heritage and flavor all its own. And the real beauty of traveling with a rail pass is you can hop on and off the trains at your leisure, so feel free to stay that extra night in a city you love or extend your trip to that extra destination, now made possible for free!



Receive your "Royal Gift" extra travel day on BritRail's most popular passes: the BritRail FlexiPass, BritRail Consecutive Pass, BritRail England FlexiPass and BritRail England Consecutive Pass, in either First Class or Standard Class.



Just purchase between April 1st and April 29th, 2011 to take advantage of this promotion and note passes are valid for six months from the date of purchase so, even if you can't make it to London for the Royal Wedding, no need to worry as travel dates can extend to the end of October.

To further sweeten the deal, this promotion can be combined with BritRail's range of discount Passes, including the BritRail Party Pass (up to 50% off on the third through ninth passengers), BritRail Family Pass (one child per adult travels free), BritRail Senior Pass (up to 15% off in first class), BritRail Youth Pass (up to 20% off in first or standard class), Eurail Pass Holder Rate (up to 50% off for youth with a valid Eurail Pass) and the BritRail Guest Pass (up to 25% off for you and a British resident).

Updated with a video about the West Highland Line. The pass can also be used for overnight sleeper trains ( seat is free to the passholder but reservations for the sleeper cost a few quid ):

Last call to take advantage of the extra day for these BritRail passes if considering a holiday back to the UK. On average the extra day would otherwise cost you a further £50 at the very least.
