Planning and booking the perfect rail holiday is now easier than ever, as Railbookers Group unveiled its new interactive online map for its brands, Railbookers and Amtrak Vacations. Unique among the travel industry, the innovative tool allows travellers to navigate and learn more about train routes, stations, hotels and attractions in their desired destinations worldwide.
Once an itinerary is selected, the map narrows on each city destination, showing the train station, major attractions, and their proximity to the thousands of hotel options available across both brands. Hotels can then be selected for more information, showing photos, amenities, specific location details, and much more. Each day of the chosen itinerary is also outlined with a description of the day-to-day sightseeing and activities included with the trip.
The map also allows travellers to visualize the train routes they will take when selecting their desired holiday, helping to seamlessly connect each city along their journey.
“Listening and responding to the needs and desires of our travel advisors and customers is at the core of our company, and our new interactive map tool is just the latest example of that,” said Jim Marini, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. “As the experts in worldwide rail travel, we’re so excited to deliver this easy-to-use and informational tool to our travel advisors and customers, making their travel planning with us easier.”
For example, a traveller interested in visiting Rome with Railbookers would be able to see the location of Roma Termini station, available 3- to 5-star hotel options, and major attractions like the Colosseum and Vatican City in one interactive screen. Likewise, a traveller visiting New York City with Amtrak Vacations can easily see hotel options close to Times Square, Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station, and other major points of interest there.
