New 'rail and sail' river cruise itineraries

A "rail and sail" itinerary enables clients who can’t fly to forego travel stress and start their river cruise holiday with a relaxing train journey. With enquiries for these trips on the up, Abra Dunsby looks at three top options

For cityscapes and Alpine scenery

Glacier Express and Danube Cruise

Great Rail Journeys’ new trip combines a journey onboard the Glacier Express – famed for providing spectacular views of canyons, gorges and Alpine villages – with a seven-night Danube cruise. Clients can also witness the beauty of cities including Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest, which is visited by night.


Lisa Wood, sales and marketing director at Great Rail Journeys, says: “Many clients will be taking time to reflect on their travel plans, considering ways to travel more responsibly and reduce their environmental impact. Agents can help holidaymakers interested in supporting the conscious-travel trend to discover rail and river cruise as a no-fly, climate-friendly travel option.”


Book it: From £3,295pp, including five nights’ hotel accommodation and seven nights onboard the Amadeus Queen, Silver II or Imperial. Price includes Eurostar travel for 8 August 2021 departure. greatrail.com/travelagents
