Joining your holidayLondon has so many attractions, activities and entertainment options... the theatres, the museums, the parks and the shops are all waiting to be explored! So why not begin your holiday by arriving there a day or more prior to the start of your tour? We can arrange so much - including travel to and from London and overnight hotels - to help you get the most out of your time and begin your tour in real style.
Door to door luggageIf you would like to avoid carrying your cases from home, across London, and all the way to your holiday destination, Treyn is pleased to recommend the services of both "Carry My Luggage" and "The Baggage Man". Both independent companies offer a cost-effective and reliable door-to-door luggage collection and delivery service. Your case will be collected from home a few days prior to the holiday departure so that it can be waiting for you at your main hotel. On the way home, you can leave your case behind in the hotel to be collected and returned home. The services are available either one-way or return. Further details of these services are available on request.
Travelling to LondonWe appreciate that many of our customers travel from a variety of places in the UK to St Pancras International in London to join our European tours, some more distant than others. As our European tours generally commence at St Pancras International during the morning of the first day, it is often more convenient to make your way to London the previous day, so you are fresh and rested before joining your tour. Let us make it easy for you by booking rail tickets to London and an overnight hotel near St Pancras International.
UK rail connections
Buying tickets for UK train services can be a tricky business - there are so many fares to choose from, each with different rules and restrictions. As you are connecting with an international departure, we strongly recommend that you book a fully flexible ticket to ensure that should the departure times for your holiday change, your rail ticket can allow for these changes.
We can book fully-flexible UK rail tickets from your local station to join your holiday whether this be a European holiday from St Pancras or a UK holiday. The prices are competitive and tickets are not restricted to a particular train or time of day, and in most cases offer you a free choice of routes.

Joining Eurostar at Ebbsfleet International
It's not just London that can boast direct links to the Continent. Travellers from the South of England can also connect to the Eurostar at Ebbsfleet International, which is conveniently situated close to the M25 and other major road links, and has lots of parking spaces. For travellers who wish to avoidLondon, departing from Ebbsfleet International can get your holiday off to a hassle-free start.
Unfortunately not all Eurostar services to and from St Pancras International stop at Ebbsfleet International. Those people travelling from Ebbsfleet may have to travel on an earlier train from the group who depart from St Pancras International and meet them in Paris or Brussels. A Rail Variation Fee of £20 per person will applicable in this instance as we have to purchase an individual ticket for you.
