Luxury train travel is as good as it sounds, but sometimes a long trip isn't the answer. The Club makes it easy to find the perfect journey, in every way.
Chippenham, Wiltshire, UK (PRWEB) July 12, 2013
The Luxury Train Club has pulled together a programme of trains especially for those who only require a day trip or a short 2- or 3-day journey. Membership is simple and free, just subscribe to the Club newsletter.
Luxury train holidays are sometimes up to 15 days’ duration, and many are between 4 – 8 days. Client feedback indicates that some would prefer shorter trips. Identifying the ideal journey time is often a time-consuming task.
The Club has one ready-made solution – the Calendar of Luxury Train Journeys, with a link from every train information page.
However, with the launch of a service focussing on a programme of one-day and short journeys (3 days or fewer), the Club has made the job even easier.
Here is a selection, on four continents, noting that Club Member discounts apply for every train, and that all prices shown are public rates, per person:
