August 24, 2011

LONDON, August 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

DialAFlight highlight growing trend for rail holidays and echo praise
for Rocky Mountaineer

DialAFlight, one of the UK’s leading travel companies and a provider of
flights to USA [http://www.dialaflight.com/flights/usa ] and Canada, have
heralded a surge in the popularity for rail holidays by focusing on the
award winning Rocky Mountaineer train.

The Rocky Mountaineer train has yet again won the ‘World’s Leading
Travel Experience by Train’ award at the World Travel Awards. It’s the fifth
time in a row that this spectacular rail journey has won the accolade and a
fine opportunity to reflect on the burgeoning appeal of train holidays.

The latest feature on DialAFlight TV [http://media.dialaflight.com/tv ]
explores this epic rail experience in the company of Jennifer Condie from
Rocky Mountaineer and discovers just why it continues to garner such glowing
praise ahead of iconic railway travel experiences like The Orient Express
and The Blue Train.

The Rocky Mountaineer has five routes for 2012, all of which wind though
British Columbia’s most breathtaking scenery, where the immense Rockies
tower over glacial turquoise lakes. It is a hugely romantic way to
experience such epic landscapes, granting truly exceptional views and
offering travellers a chance to take in stop-offs such as Banff, and its
stunning UNESCO protected surroundings, and Whistler, one of North America’s
top rates Ski resorts.

The real beauty of The Rocky Mountaineer is that such ruggedly beautiful
landscapes can be experienced from the palatial interior of the train’s
exceptionally well appointed carriages. There are a selection of service
levels to choose from, ranging from the GoldLeaf Service, which includes
access to an exclusive dining room and gourmet meals, to the more affordable
RedLeaf service. Whichever level travellers opt for, they can be confident
of that there’s no more comfortable way to experience the majesty of the
Great Outdoors.

Dialaflight offer a selection of Rocky Mountaineer packages including
the popular Vancouver to Banff route
