Take The Train

Holidays by Train

Enhance your adventure by taking the train

Settle in and admire the views as you sweep through Europe’s vast and varied countryside. Meet local people and discover hidden gems that unsuspecting air travellers miss out on. Slow travel helps us to fully relax on holiday and take stock of our surroundings. Whether you book your train travel through us, or organise it yourself, opting to take the train to your trip has so many benefits. Read on for just a few…

Travel in comfort

Swap all the queuing and waiting around, for smooth, stress-free journeys. Whether sleek, high-speed sleepers or leisurely regional trains, regen, Europe’s rail network provides the opportunity to travel very comfortably (and in some cases, luxuriously!).

Care for the planet

Train travel has a far lower carbon impact than travel by plane or even car. For example, travelling from London to Nice on the train produces 18kg of carbon per individual, where flying the same journey would emit over 7 times more*. (You can read about how Exodus Travels is taking action on climate change here.)

Extend the adventure

Travelling by train means your adventure starts almost at your front door and allows you to explore Europe (and beyond) in a unique way. Picture lunch in Paris before continuing your journey through charming provincial towns and countryside to your final destination. You won’t miss a thing!

Easier than you might think

We can currently book your train travel to all our self-guided holidays across the length and breadth of Europe. Just call our team on 0203 733 9727 to discuss the options. We’ll soon be expanding this train travel booking service to many of our small group adventures too, but in the meantime, there are a number of sites that make it easy for you to plan and book your own journey, such as Man in Seat 61, RailEurope and TheTrainline. Exodus Client, Barbara Wilcox, has been taking the train to our trips for many years; read her advice here.
