The Railtrail Experience
Our quality escorted holidays allow you to relax and enjoy the unique experience that is travelling by train.
Consistent high standards combined with a friendly relaxed manner characterise Railtrail’s tours. All the attractions, excursions and journeys described are thoroughly researched, planned and organised by the Railtrail team and are inclusive in your tour fare.
Similarly, we select all our hotels for their location, quality of service and facilities combined with the warmth of their welcome, style and character. Our tours feature delightful hotel and restaurant meals; each itinerary indicates all the meals we include.
Choose to travel from your nearest or preferred ‘home’ rail station. Railtrail will plan all your train journeys and book your ticket and seat reservations. You will receive a personalised Railtrail itinerary describing these along with all your holiday journeys and excursions. At your Tour Joining Station you will be met by your Tour Manager who will then escort your holiday throughout.
Touring by train the Railtrail way – a great way to travel in comfort and style.
Some of the things we are often asked as customers plan their holidays…
How many people will there be on the tour?
We ensure holiday arrangements are matched to the size of tour groups (typically 19 - 28 passengers) and always understand that you want attentive but not intrusive personal attention.
I’m concerned - I will be travelling on my own…
Single travellers are made extremely welcome on our tours and they invariably appreciate and enjoy the convivial manner that typifies a Railtrail holiday.
Who will be our Railtrail Tour Manager?
“From the moment we met our Tour Manager we knew we could relax and enjoy our holiday.” Words so often heard from clients travelling with Railtrail.
Our Tour Managers are the lynchpins of our organisation and reflect the Railtrail team’s friendly, helpful and caring belief that we provide a quality of service second to none.
Quite often our clients ask if a particular Tour Manger will be taking their holiday! Those who have travelled with us invariably make special mention of their Tour Manager and Railtrail take pride in the comments we receive about their kindness, skill, good humour, knowledge and willingness to help.
How is my money protected?
We assure you… Financial protection of our clients’ money is in place, with all your payments held in a designated Client Trust account and only released upon completion of your holiday. So no matter what method of payment you use your monies are 100% safe.
You will find lots of helpful information in the “Frequently Asked Questions” section of our website; we have included answers to a wide variety of the questions Railtrail customers have asked over more than 30 years of us operating quality holidays by train.
