Single-centre rail travel allows clients to explore a destination in depth, without the hassle of staying in multiple hotels. Charlotte Flach rounds up the options
For clients who love to discover a new destination, but who are less keen on the idea of travelling extensively or staying in several hotels, a single-centre rail holiday might appeal.
These trips give travellers the opportunity to immerse themselves in a destination and gain insights from a guide while experiencing the pleasure and convenience of train travel.
Single-centre rail tours can also appeal to an older demographic craving a slower pace of travel, explains Tim Fleming, sales and business development manager for Arena Rail Holidays.
“Our single-centre tours are generally popular with older clients, offering plenty of time to relax in a picturesque destination, but they also include a range of interesting excursions in the surrounding area.”
He also adds that the guided element of a single-centre trip will appeal to fans of touring. “Consider switch-selling – escorted holidays by rail are ideal for clients who already enjoy river cruising or coach holidays.”
Here, we highlight some popular single-centre options to suggest to clients.
