italktravel Horsham wrote itself into the travel industry record books this month when it visited the Rail Plus website and unknowingly made the company’s one millionth booking!
Anne Taylor, Managing Director of italktravel Horsham in Victoria, made the historic transaction, using the Rail Plus website to secure an ATOC ticket between London and Glasgow.
To celebrate the milestone Rail Plus Sales Executive James Hooper visited the italktravel Horsham last week to deliver some flowers and treats.
Rail Plus can trace its origins back to the mid 1980’s when it was created as a specialist rail unit within National Australia Bank’s travel division. Thirty years later the company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rail Europe.
“There is no doubt that Rail Plus has driven the expansion of the rail sector in Australasia, and it has done so by offering an unmatched level of specialist service and an unrivalled range of rail products around the world,” says Dunne.
“Rail Plus has also been an innovator, particularly when it comes to technology. The company was, for instance, one of the first Rail Europe GSAs anywhere in the world to launch an online booking engine, and we have pioneered e-ticketing for rail journeys.
“In addition, the launch of our Great Train Journeys division has raised awareness of some of the world’s most exciting and glamourous rail voyages.
“None of this would have been possible of course without our valued travel agency partners. Thank you for your support and I look forward to celebrating the next one-in-a-million milestone.”
