Buying the ticket once the trip has started

Realistically, is it fairly straightforward to buy a ticket once I am on the trip? Would I just need my passport? My reason for asking this is that my salary comes in on the 21st (and I am also moving flat at the moment, which is expensive), so a back-up plan may be to only buy the ticket on that date (and stay wherever I fly to on the 18th/19th for a couple of days).

My plans have now changed, but the above query is still relevant. I am now going to set off (by air from London to Prague) on 25th August, and need my InterRail ticket to be valid from 26th August. I would still like to buy it on or after 21st August, but I have just noticed in another thread that they can apparently not be bought at British stations. 😵 Does this apply to even the main London ones? What about STA? Or should I try to buy it in Prague? What's the best plan?

you can buy it in Prague at the main station.

Thanks. I rang British rail enquiries over the weekend and they said that it is possible to buy InterRail tickets at staffed British stations. They may of course have made a mistake, but I'll try one of them tomorrow and report back - otherwise, I'll get it in Prague.

N.B. The official enquiries line misinformed me the other day. It is indeed the case that you cannot buy InterRail tickets from British railway stations - even the huge ones in London. :/
