Train Holidays: 6 Benefits of a rail trip
A train holiday is a relaxed voyage. Queues, crowds and rushing between destinations are all regular occurrences when you choose to drive or fly, but when you opt for a train holiday, you can forget about these unpleasant aspects of travel. Instead, you’ll sit back, relax and fully enjoy a holiday where traffic jams are swapped for spectacular scenery, crowded cabins are switched for a luxurious carriage, and costly convenience food can be replaced by high end dining experiences.
The Benefits of Travelling Europe by Train
1. The convenience of luxury rail travel
Often when we travel, we find ourselves rushing about and waiting around. But when you take a holiday by train, you can forget about super early arrivals, long queues and stringent check-in procedures. You can also rest assured that you won’t be caught up in traffic and stress free.
2. Relaxing in First Class train luxury
Journeying by train is travelling for pleasure. You’ll enjoy peace and quiet, with unlimited options for how you wish to spend your journey. Whether you choose to read, work, chat, dine, or even catch up on some much-needed sleep, you’ll discover the ideal environment aboard the train.
3. Luxurious & Discerning rail travel
Train holidays can certainly be luxurious. On board, you’ll find high quality interiors that capture the character of the journey whilst offering the modern technology you’d expect. Aboard a selection of the trains, you’ll discover a fine menu and extensive wine list, delivered via table service by smart, friendly experts. And when it comes to getting some rest on overnight journeys, you’ll enjoy a comfortable, private cabin that doesn’t scrimp on style.
There’s something extra special about travelling by train, taking you from A to B in the most exclusive and elegant manner; a manner now all but lost in other forms of travel.
4. Romantic rail trips
The railway is the most romantic way to travel, offering a sense of charm and tranquility that can’t be matched by other modes of transport. Comfortable and refined, you’ll feel right at home when travelling solo, though it’s also the perfect way to spend quality time with your companion.
Passing through Europe’s picturesque rural settings, you’ll enjoy the natural beauty of untouched countryside together, reconnecting upon a backdrop of stunning vistas. Forget about the usual hustle and bustle of travel; when you holiday by train, you can enjoy each other’s company without distraction.
5. A social journey by train
While many choose to experience the railway with their significant other, train holidays are also a great opportunity for solo travellers and group bookings. Your own cabin or quiet areas will provide the privacy you require when needed, but for the rest of the journey, feel free to roam, explore and meet like-minded fellow travelers. Restaurant and bar carriages are a great place to meet new people, while communal areas allow larger groups to socialize.
The staff onboard are highly knowledgeable and attentive, and will be delighted to answer questions and offer suggestions too.
6. Diverse train experiences
When you travel by train, you cover much more ground. You also save time that’s usually spent making connections or suffering delays. This means that you’re able to fit more experiences into your holiday, getting more value for money and making even more memories.
Visiting a number of destinations in a short space of time may sound tiring, but when you travel by train, your journey becomes a highlight rather than a chore. Allow us to transport you to the continent’s most beautiful destinations, offering you the ultimate European experience in our carefully curated holidays.
A train holiday is a truly magical experience, and guaranteed to leave you relaxed, refreshed and eagerly awaiting your next trip.
