The River Cruise Line is offering all clients booking one of its European river cruises in May, a free UK coach holiday with sister company Diamond Shortbreak Holidays.

The offer applies to bookings for selected river cruises made via agents before  March 7, and provides clients with a voucher worth up to £250 per person to offset against the cost of a UK short break taken between April 31 and November 31, 2014.

Prices are based on two adults sharing an en-suite cabin on full board basis; return ferry crossing from Dover to Calais and transport to join the cruise; evening entertainment; services of a cruise manager and coach transfers from a selection of regional departure points.

Each booking will entitle clients to a voucher for a UK coach holiday in 2014, worth up to £250 per person. The programme of tours is wide-ranging, with options to suit all interests, including:
