Rail Plus now offering 1200 ferry voyages

February 13, 2014 Rail No Comments Email Email

Travel agents can now use the Rail Plus website (www.railplus.com.au) to quickly and conveniently book voyages on more than 1200 ferry routes in Europe and across the globe. 

Australia’s leading rail operator has joined forces with UK-based AFerry.com, the world’s largest online ferry ticket distribution network, to provide the new service.

The move gives travel agents the ability to book ferry journeys throughout Europe – including the UK, France, Spain, Ireland and the Mediterranean – as well as Asia, the Middle East, New Zealand and Australia.

General Manager Sales & Marketing Greg McCallum says that while the ferry bookings are non-commissionable, the new service offers travel agents an efficient, convenient and memorable opportunity to exceed their customers’ expectations.

“Ferry voyages are very often an effective and expedient way to travel and in most cases they also combine seamlessly with rail networks,” says McCallum. “Until now, however, they have not been the easiest products for agents to book, and as a result travellers are sometimes forced to organise the journeys themselves.

“Agents can now add value and impress customers by easily and quickly booking just about any ferry services themselves. That helps build trust and provides yet another reason for customers to return.”
