Leading coach operator Buzzlines has introduced a number of luxury continental touring holidays to its diverse 2013 programme thanks to a unique road/rail travel alliance with Eurostar.
Buzzlines’ new Eurostar Connection programme features relaxing summer vacations to scenic destinations across France and beyond including Reims and the Champagne region, Auxerre, The Loire Valley, the Costa Brava and Eastern Pyrenees. There is also a seven-day classical music-orientated tour of Germany, which culminates in a trip to the Waldbühne in Berlin to enjoy an open-air performance by the Berlin Philharmoniker.
Each European excursion includes return Eurostar journeys between London and Paris, Lille or Brussels, as appropriate, with onward travel aboard Buzzlines’ new state-of-the-art Eurostar Connection coach.
This luxury vehicle has only 44 seats, rather than the 55 plus usually fitted into a 13-metre coach, to allow for plenty of passenger legroom and comfort. It also offers the latest in at-seat entertainment and on-board facilities.
“This exciting new programme will take holidaymakers to the less well-visited parts of France and beyond. We have purposefully kept the amount of daily travel to a minimum, allowing our guests plenty of time to savour the places we visit and relax.
“Connecting with Eurostar is part of our luxury theme. Crossing the Channel by train offers our passengers an interesting and enjoyable “commute” and means their holiday starts as soon as they board the high-speed train at St Pancras. Our competitive holiday prices even include the Eurostar baggage service, so Buzzlines customers can fully enjoy their on-board experience without having to wrestle with their suitcases.
“This road-rail connection is a great way to travel across Europe, taking in truly memorable sights. We are confident that customers will be pleasantly surprised by how much they get for their money and just how much we can include in a five-, seven- and 11-day itinerary without ever needing to rush.”
Another feature of Buzzlines’ Eurostar Connections programme is that all tours (with the sole exception of the Reims long weekend) will be supported from St Pancras onwards by a Buzzlines Tour Captain, who will be on hand to answer questions and ensure holidaymakers receive excellent customer service throughout their holiday.
Buzzlines’ 2013 brochure also includes a wide range of coach tours and excursions, including West End theatre and concert trips, days out and longer tours to attractions across the UK as well as European destinations such as Bruges, Boulogne and Lille, and further afield as far as Italy and Spain.
Buzzlines has also introduced a number of trips around special events such as the Badminton Horse Trials and the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire.
