Looking for A Stylish Way to Travel
Looking for a stylish way to travel?
Why not take a train or a private jet? So yesterday’s news… You might be able to get to your destination in record time if you hire a private jet, but can you afford it? If you want to fly in style, a train is a way to go. Depending on cash, you can hire a train to fly from anywhere to almost anywhere in the world.
Private Train Trips:
Private train trips can be arranged in the UK and abroad. The demand for this form of the rail journey seems to have increased, with private air charter companies flocking to escape the hassles of flying.
A “celebrity couple” recently hired a six-car Orient Express train for themselves, and six bodyguards, which included a Pullman carriage frequented by the late Grace Kelly, an Austrian presidential sleeping car, and a Piano Bar. The £70,000 journey took eleven hours and covered 660 miles.
These journeys can be very costly, putting them out of reach for most of us, but specialized train travel agents put a lot of time and effort into planning these relaxing trips. Traveling across Europe in six countries will take up to eight weeks to plan.
Alternate to Private Carriage:
A more practical alternative is to hire a private carriage on a regularly scheduled train, which is becoming more common. The cost of hiring one of these carriages for a group of 40 people from London to Bath is £3,000, plus the cost of catering and/or entertainment.

Are you sick of dealing with airports? When you think of a holiday, inspecting an object you carry in FAA-regulated luggage, walking through security lines with your shoes off, only to wait much longer in the terminal before boarding a stuffy plane with tiny seats isn’t exactly what comes to mind. Furthermore, bad experiences on board will set the tone for the rest of the journey and don’t even get us started on what you’ll do if your luggage goes missing.
Traveling By Train:
Have you considered taking the train? Traveling by train in coach provides more legroom, larger seats, and the same fold-down tray as flying. If you upgrade to business class, each seat has an AC outlet and footrest. Some Amtrak cars have a Quiet Car option, where passengers can only make noises that are barely audible. Instead of staring out your window at white or blue nothingness, take a train ride and take in the sights of the countryside. A train also allows you to carry your own food and drink, including your own supply of bourbon and spirits. Kiss those $4 air-coach drinks goodbye.
Traveling by train is less expensive than traveling by plane. Amtrak has made rail travel more attractive with recent reduced fares and weekend getaway fares. Amtrak also sells 15, 30, and 45-day rail passes, as well as 7 days of travel in California for a 21-day period for $159. A one-way flight from Norfolk to Atlanta costs $277, while the same travel by train costs $169.
Traveling by train, on the other hand, takes a little longer than flying. (Train travel from Norfolk to Atlanta takes 16.5 hours!) Traveling by train is a more pleasant way to travel long distances and take vacations. The most popular choice is to look for direct routes, but if you have a lot of time to relax, get on the iron horse. You’ll be able to fly more easily and gain new travel experience.
