Why travellers prefer Blue Cross
Travelling by train is not something most people think about when they explore their vacation options. However, there are a number of relaxing and scenic train rides that are not only great trip options, they also give you a new way of exploring travel destinations.
“Luckily, some of the world’s most beautiful destinations are also home to the most scenic train rides—journeys ranging from a few hours to more than a week, costing as little as two movie tickets or as much as a luxury cruise, and traversing terrain as dramatic as snow-capped peaks or orange-hued deserts,” says Donna Heiderstadt in Fodor's Travel.
Travelling by train offers unique advantages:
Accessibility and flexibility: There are train stations in almost every city, allowing you to customize your trip however you see fit. Most stops also tend to be centrally located, making it easy for you to explore once you get off the train.
Simplicity: Unlike flying or driving, all you need to do is check in and board the train. There is no need to check in two hours early, and you can bring your own food on board.
Sightseeing: Train travel gives you the opportunity to see a location from a new perspective. It’s the perfect way to see the countryside and take in beautiful landscapes where you are travelling.
Relaxation: Travelling by train is more relaxing. You have more room and larger seats compared with flying, and you have the freedom to sit back, read a book, take a nap or enjoy the scenery.
Choice: There are world-class train travel options almost anywhere in the world. You can travel across Canada, United States, Europe and so many other places.
