From this Thursday (5 November) the UK Government has put a stop to any travel or holidays in the UK or overseas unless you are travelling for business. This new lockdown is scheduled to last until 2 December but it could, of course, be extended.
What this means is that any trips you had booked during this new lockdown time on UK or overseas trains will have to be postponed. Whilst this is a real shame for customers and the companies themselves (especially our heritage train lines), staying safe is the most important issue here. We will of course, keep you up to date on what the ban means for railway travel as the news breaks.
While the news is bleak, there is however, one silver lining – rail holiday companies are looking to the future and beginning to offer some incredible discounts on holidays booked for 2021.
Today (Monday 2 November) Railbookers announced a flash sale with some amazing savings.
Some of the incredible savings on Railbookers include £300 per couple on any 3-6-night rail holiday and saving of up to £400 per couple on any 7-9-night rail holiday.
Passengers can also save £500 per couple on any 10+ night rail holiday.
This offer is only available until 13 November but you can lock in your savings with only a small deposit and book with peace of mind as Railbookers offers maximum flexibility so you can cancel or reschedule your trip to any destination the train goes, up to 5 days prior to departure without any change or cancellation fees.
So, now’s the time to book a trip on the Caledonian Sleeper to Inverness and the Scottish Highlands, saving £300 per couple or a bucket-list trip to Venice, Florence and Rome, saving a massive £400 per couple.
This deal is only available on the phone so you need to call Railbookers on 020 3780 2222.
Rail travel may be halted at the moment in the UK but there’s lots to look forward to in 2021 – so book now and look forward to a memorable trip next year.
