Great Rail Jour­neys takes to the wa­ter with its in­au­gu­ral river cruise pro­gramme

Selling Travel - - The Review -

GREAT Rail Jour­neys is branch­ing into the river cruise mar­ket af­ter char­ter­ing three ves­sels which will have their in­au­gu­ral de­par­tures in April 2019.

Great Rail Jour­neys’ pitches its river cruise prod­uct as “five-star state of the art, modern lux­ury, of­fer­ing some of the largest and most gen­er­ous cab­ins on Europe’s wa­ter­ways at some of the most com­pet­i­tive prices in the UK mar­ket.”

GRJ cruises will of­fer one-way itin­er­ar­ies on all rivers so that cus­tomers won’t have to see the same sec­tion of the river twice.

Agents book­ing with GRJ can of­fer their clients flex­i­ble ways to trans­fer to their cruise – by flight or es­corted rail, as part of a tour and cruise itin­er­ary, or as an add-on to an ex­ist­ing Great Rail Jour­neys tour.

Trade will also be able to se­lect the ex­act cabin for their cus­tomers at the time of book­ing via the GRJ agent por­tal.

Char­ter itin­er­ar­ies in­clude tours along the Rhine, Danube and the Wa­ter­ways of Bel­gium and Hol­land.

Agents who book the prod­uct un­til May 31 2018 will be en­tered into a draw to win a cabin for two on one of the new charters.

Lind­say Dixon, Head of Trade Sales, says: “We are par­tic­u­larly proud of our flex­i­ble ap­proach, al­low­ing cus­tomers to choose their own ex­cur­sions and cab­ins at no ex­tra cost, whether it’s an on­board con­cert with mem­bers of Vi­enna’s Phil­har­monic Orches­tra, or ex­plor­ing the Keuken­hof Gar­dens with Char­lie Dim­mock.”
