Private carriages are ideal for smaller groups for which a complete chartered train is inappropriate. We still offer our project and guest management services as well as catering and entertainment.
(PRWEB) June 13, 2009
Train Chartering is expanding its private carriage and rail-based event planning services for escorted groups on scheduled trains in Europe and the UK following unprecedented client interest in the first half of 2009.
Train Chartering offers private carriages / rail cars in both 1st (First) and 2nd (Standard) Class on European and UK trains, including Eurostar and Thalys.
Groups are escorted by Train Chartering's stewards who liaise with station staff and train crew. Train Chartering organises meeting and greeting facilities at stations as well as catering, branding, onboard meeting & entertainment options.
Train Chartering's Simon Pielow knows why group travel in private carriages is growing in popularity, "Private carriages are ideal for smaller groups for which a complete chartered train is inappropriate. We still offer our project and guest management services as well as catering and entertainment. "
In addition, Train Chartering provides rail event planning at destination (specialising in Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Lille, London and Paris) as well as onward multi-modal transfers through its Transport Charter division.
The client leader of a previous group to Paris commented that their day in Paris was memorable, with not a moment to spare; a real introduction to Paris. She added that Train Chartering was excellent and very organised, keeping them to schedule so they saw so many of the sights.
Train Chartering is the pioneer of a coordinated approach to sourcing, theming and crewing special trains and carriages for a variety of corporate and leisure applications. This full service approach is enhanced by comprehensive guest management, including ground handling & transfer services.
