No Fly Holidays

Whether you’re after a short break or an extended holiday, you can travel further and wider than you might think, without the need to take to the skies.

Make the most of Europe’s excellent high-speed rail network, connecting the UK shores to almost every corner of the continent. Enjoy a more relaxing travel experience vs flying, from quicker and more efficient check-in procedures, to sitting back and watching picturesque countryside roll past your window.

Alternatively, climb aboard a cruise ship for an adventure to Europe, North America and beyond, indulging in world class entertainment and dining, while waking up in a different destination every morning.

We’ve created a collection of no-fly holidays to Europe and beyond, which require absolutely no flying. From self-guided or group rail holidays to cruising the seven seas, the world is your oyster.
