Train hire FAQs
What's the difference between private train hire and large group travel on scheduled trains?
Private train hire means that you can travel directly to your destination in a train just for your group, without changes (even if you would have to change if you were travelling in a normal scheduled train). With large group travel on scheduled trains, we reserve or attach private rail carriages for your own use or arrange for your group to sit together in a normal, public train.
Whether to hire a private train or have private carriages in a public train? We will advise you which is the most cost-effective for your particular group and route. How to hire a private train or organise large group rail travel on a public train?
Hiring a train or arranging group travel is simple with us because we manage everything for you. A single contact will handle your booking from start to finish, advising you on costs and options, and will then book and arrange the train travel for you.
