    Hello,

    Is anyone aware of a trans-UK rail pass that I would be able to purchase? I'm an international student trying to determine the most cost-effective means of travel from interview to interview using the UK railway system.

    Nope. You can get a 16-25 railcard which will discount travel but that's got 1 or 3 year validity.

    You can consider Megabus or National Express. They're coaches, not trains, but cheap and have been good in my experience

    The coaches? Most of them do. I've never tried the NE Wifi, but Megabus wifi is slow

    The trains? No I don't think so, but I may be wrong
