    6 of the best rail holidays to take in 2019

    Every passionate traveller’s worst fear is the thought of not getting to visit every destination on their bucket list. Which is understandable given how many incredible destinations there are in the world.

    A solution to ticking every place off is a rail itinerary that takes you through multiple cities and towns within one holiday. We’ve recently teamed up with Railbookers to create some new multi-stop rail journeys that include hotel accommodation and transport (including return flights to the UK). Here are six itineraries that you can book now for 2019.

    1. Venice via the Alps

    You’ll firstly make your way to Paris via Eurostar, where you’ll transfer to your onward rail travel. Then it’s time to enjoy one night in Geneva, before setting out on your journey through the Swiss Alps, riding along the Simplon Pass. Your final destination is Venice, where you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful sights for three nights. To return to the UK you can choose between flights or a return rail journey.

    2. Switzerland’s Lakes and Mountains

    Explore Switzerland at a leisurely pace with this five-night itinerary. Start with an overnight stay in Montreux before you continue along the Golden Pass Line to Interlaken. Take a quick detour to the highest railway station at the top of Jungfrau Mountain, before travelling through the Swiss Alps on-board the Glacier Express to Chur. Complete this incredible journey with a day trip across spectacular viaducts past impressive glaciers on the Bernina Express to Tirano.

    3. Ultimate Canada Coast to Coast

    On this itinerary, you’ll start with a flight to the Atlantic Canada gem of Halifax in Nova Scotia. Then, using the VIA Rail network, you’ll enjoy stops (and hotel accommodation) in Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto, Jasper, Banff, and Vancouver. The flight back from Vancouver to the UK and three meals are included.

    4. The All American

    This journey highlights some of America’s most popular destinations. Starting and finishing in New York City, you’ll travel on-board Amtrak® to New Orleans, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, and Chicago. Overall it is 18 days including flights, with 10 nights spent in hotel accommodation and 5 nights on-board the train.

    5. Jazz Blues and Rock ‘N’ Roll

    If you’re a big music lover, then this USA rail itinerary will be up your street. Start your journey in Chicago, with its famous blues scene, before heading down the colourful Deep South. Here you’ll stop by Memphis, the birthplace of rock ‘n' roll and home to Graceland. Then you’ll move onto New Orleans, where you can enjoy a jazz brunch at the famous Court of Two Sisters restaurant.

    6. Ultimate Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest

    With this itinerary, you’ll enjoy 2 nights each in Berlin, Prague, Vienna, and Budapest – as well as rail travel in between. In Berlin, Prague, and Vienna you’ll also be treated to a Hop on Hop Off bus pass, while in Budapest you’ll be invited on-board a Danube River Cruise. Eurostar transport between London and Brussels and return flights from Budapest are also included.
