Travelmarvel’s new Great Rail Journeys 2016 brochure is the company’s first ever dedicated brochure for this travel format and has been made possible through an exclusive partnership with award winning UK-based rail travel company Great Rail Journeys.
Designed to capture the golden era of rail travel, when the train was more than just the mode of transport but the highlight itself, Travelmarvel’s new program offers a choice of fourteen relaxing rail journeys covering the length and breadth of Europe.
What makes the new Travelmarvel Great Rail Journeys stand out in the market is the fact that each one is accompanied by a dedicated English speaking tour manager. Travelling with guests throughout, they will handle all elements of the tour, from ticketing to ensuring guests are personally guided to their platforms and to their seats and liaising with the English speaking guides. Also included in every journey is all premium centrally located accommodation, airport and hotel transfers and selected excursions, entrance fees, meals and sightseeing.
Travelmarvel is featuring many of Europe’s most iconic trains and railways in its program: from the world’s slowest express train, the Glacier Express in Switzerland; to the art deco elegance of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express; and the West Highland Line in Scotland, whose Jacobite Steam Train starred as the Hogwarts Express in the famous Harry Potter films.
David Cox, executive general manager at Travelmarvel says the company is committed to showcasing the romance of rail travel to its guests in Australia.
“Rail is such an exciting way to travel and it is definitely in demand amongst our guests. With this program we offer itineraries that are fully chaperoned so that guests have someone to support them throughout their trip, enabling them to sit back and just enjoy themselves. We take care of all the hotels, all the tour guides, transfers and most meals are also included. Through our partnership with Great Rail Journeys we are offering rail holidays as they should be – seamless, stylish and stress-free.”
To celebrate the new program, Travelmarvel is offering an earlybird discount of $1,000 per couple off all itineraries, which is available until sold out.
