The benefits of a rail holiday

When many people think about going on holiday it conjures up images of getting on a plane or having a road trip, but travelling by rail could be a better option for your next holiday.

There are plenty of benefits of a rail holiday which could inspire you to take this method of transport the next time you travel.


Avoid the chaos

When you go on a rail holiday you don’t need to worry about lengthy check-in times or getting through long lines at security, so there is a lot less waiting around than when you fly. Plus there are no carry-on restrictions so you can keep whatever you like with you to ensure that you have an enjoyable journey.


Travel in comfort

Travelling by rail offers more space than when you travel by plane or car, and if you are taking overnight trips you will be able to enjoy a cosy cabin too rather than having to sit upright while you try to snooze.

In addition to this you are much less likely to suffer from travel sickness than you are when using other methods of transport, and you won’t have to worry about traffic or turbulence either.


Admire the views

Although it can be nice to see the country you’re visiting from the sky before you land, this is nothing compared to making your way through it on a train and seeing all that it has to offer. Train lines often run through natural landscapes so the views will be better than if you were to travel by car too

Seeing the stunning scenery pass by is sure to help you to relax and unwind, and it is likely that you will be able to visit additional destinations as your train will stop in a variety of places that you could explore.

So if you are looking for something different the next time you travel, consider the benefits of a rail holiday when you are choosing your holiday brochures and we guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised.
