We will have a Britrail Pass and will be taking a London to York route on a Saturday in September. We plan to get a reservation for that, which I understand is free if done in the train station.
My 1st question is do BOTH of us have to be present to get the seat reservation slips? My dad will be arriving in London a couple days prior to me and could get the reservations for us both. Otherwise, we would need to get them on Saturday when I arrive. Last time I did that, reservations were "sold out" for the day and we had to "hop on" and find a seat. I am trying to avoid that this time.
My 2nd question is if one person can get both reservations, does that person need the Britrail pass to show the ticket agent to issue the seat reservations? If so, I will make sure my dad has the pass with him so he can get the reservations for us.
