Prices lead in at £245 per person for a four-day ‘Bath & Bristol Christmas Markets’ tour.
The 15 new tours from Treyn include Christmas market tours; European carnival themed tours, including ‘Lake Lucerne at Carnival Time’; and ‘Carnival Time on the Italian Riviera’, as well as flower and garden themed tours such as ‘Malvern Spring or Autumn Show’ and ‘Floralia Spring Flower Show & Keukenhof Gardens’.
Prices start from £285 per person for a five-day ‘Yorkshire by Steam’ tour.
Tony Byrne, national sales manager for the companies, said: “The enduringly popular Christmas markets, European spring breaks and tours commemorating the centenary of the First World War are all included in our new brochure and the timing is ideal for agents to capitalise on opportunities for selling these tours ahead of the game.
"Over the last few years we have seen a growing demand for holidays departing during the spring months and our offerings within these brochures reflect this.”
Great Rail Journeys has also launched a ‘Rail Holiday Guide’ which gives agents advice on how to sell rail holidays.
