Flight-Free Holidays

About 30% of the itineraries we offer on this website are packaged to include flights, usually to save time for further afield destinations. However, if you don't like to fly, for environmental reasons or simply because you'd prefer not to, we can offer all our European holidays (and even some of the non-European ones!) without flights. The selection below gives you an idea how far you can travel without getting on a plane. If you're interested in one of our holidays which includes flights but would prefer to take the train instead, just let us know and we can give you a price for this, along with suggested routes.
