~Big Sale on British Rail~

White Plains, N.Y., April 5, 2011 – For the first time, Rail Europe Inc., the largest distributor of European rail products, is offering local British train ticket prices to North Americans. All British point-to-point tickets can be purchased at Rail Europe. Travelers can purchase their e-tickets in advance, further adding to the convenient booking options available from Rail Europe Inc.

“Rail Europe is proud to be able to offer North American travelers the same rail ticket prices that are available in Great Britain” said President and CEO, Frederic Langlois. “As a travel company, we are aware of the necessity of being competitive and offering value, affordability and a convenient booking & exchange process to our customers. The agreement we have reached with the Association of Train Operating Companies based in Britain, allows us to do this for the first time in North America.”

Rail travel in Britain includes the countries of England, Scotland and Wales and encompasses the bustling energy of cities such as London and Edinburgh and the charm of historic towns like Bath and York. Scenic rail lines include Northern England’s Settle-Carlisle Line and Scotland’s East and West Highlands Lines; and open up worlds that may otherwise be off limits with other transportation choices.

Rail Europe offers many sightseeing tours to add to the total British travel experience. For more information on British point-to-point tickets or sightseeing tours.
