In response to the pent-up demand for travel and a significant desire for "bucket list" vacations, Railbookers has introduced a new "Luxury Rail Journeys" brochure. The brochure covers a wide range of luxury rail experiences, including the Venice Simplon-Orient Express, the Belmond Royal Scotsman, Rocky Mountaineer and others.
According to Jim Marini, vice president of Railbookers, "To date in 2021, Railbookers has been witnessing an incredible surge in higher-ticket vacations. Whereas before COVID, a traveler might have booked the Venice-Simplon Orient-Express one year and then a few years later booked the Grand Glacier Express, this year we are seeing them combining both itineraries and traveling longer, selecting more luxurious accommodations, and making this vacation they have waited a year or more to take something truly spectacular.”
Railbooker's "Luxury Rail Journeys" brochure offers a variety of customizable rail journeys for travel advisors. The company has taken the luxury rail experiences and added destinations, experiences and excursions to make these trips even more special, including five-star hotel accommodations, gourmet dining experiences and more. Some advisors may choose to add these experiences as a river cruise extension or incorporate them as part of a larger holiday throughout Europe.
Additional trains include the Bernina Express in the Swiss Alps; South Africa’s Blue Train; the Jacobite Steam Train (made famous as the Hogwarts Express in the “Harry Potter” film series) in Scotland; the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian; Eastern & Oriental Express, traveling between Bangkok and Singapore; The Royal Rajasthan on Wheels in India; and Australia’s The Ghan.
Regardless of the itinerary, travel advisors can work with Railbookers' team of experts to customize them in any number of ways to create a personally curated vacation.
