Full steam ahead for Travelmarvel 2021 rail journeys
Travelmarvel has launched its Great Rail Journeys for 2021, offering a choice of 32 unique itineraries, which have been made possible through an exclusive partnership with award winning UK-based rail travel company Great Rail Journeys.
To celebrate the new program, Travelmarvel is offering a range of ‘Earlybird Specials’, including discounts of up to $3,000 per couple. Any bookings that combine European Gems cruise and rail combinations can receive free return economy flights, inclusive of air taxes. For additional savings, Travelmarvel has an early payment discount of up to $1,000 per couple when locking trips in 10 months prior to departure. All offers are limited and available until sold out.
Featuring a selection of holidays across Europe, Asia, the USA, New Zealand and Australia, Travelmarvel is featuring many of the world’s most iconic trains and railways in its program.
Commenting on the program, Travelmarvel’s Brand Manager Paddy Scott said, “We always receive fantastic feedback for our Great Rail Journeys program, especially for the fact that our itineraries are fully chaperoned. We take care of everything, enabling guests to sit back, relax and watch the world roll by.”
There are many benefits to train travel making it a great option for agents to offer clients. Along with it being more comfortable than ever, there’s no denying that rail is one of the easiest ways to travel.
From the world’s slowest express train, the Glacier Express in Switzerland; to the high speed bullet trains in Japan; the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway; India’s Toy Train; and the West Highland Line in Scotland, whose Jacobite Steam Train starred as the Hogwarts Express in the famous Harry Potter films.
On board, your clients will not feel confined to their seat as they will have ample leg room and more space between other guests. They can walk around and enjoy a chat with fellow travellers, enjoy delicious meals, snacks and drinks served at their seat or they can make their way to the restaurant or bar car when available.
Train travel provides a unique vantage point with constant views while travelling through diverse landscapes and isolated towns that often cannot be accessed by any other form of transport.
Each day the train arrives at another great destination and guests will check into a premium hotel, chosen for its convenient location or superior amenities. On a Travelmarvel Great Rail Journey, a Tour Escort is on hand to provide expert knowledge and local tips. Included tours and experiences enhance each destination, but your clients will also have plenty of leisure time to explore independently and dive right into local life.
