Ffestiniog Travellers Choose the Train to Resume their Wanderlust
Ffestiniog Travel General Manager Maria Cook comments: “We expected 2023 to be the year where we traded out of the pandemic and returned to pre-Covid levels, but bookings have surpassed our expectations.
“Our EU Rail Ticketing department has seen an increase in private group bookings among older like-minded friends and special interest societies. We have also received more bookings from cross- generational family groups who want to travel to Europe by rail. Newly introduced nightly rail services across the Continent have also made it more attractive to reach further European destinations by rail.
Maria Cook added: “There was a point during the pandemic when our 50th Anniversary year became a maybe, but we have managed to navigate our way out of the worst crisis to hit the travel industry to reach our major milestone in a strong financial position. This is thanks to our older climate-conscious travellers who have regained their wanderlust and of course to our small travel team of just nine consultants who actively provide a hands on personal service.”
