Entire Travel Group launches new ‘one-stop-shop’ for Aussie agents booking rail travel
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Entire Travel Group is bringing the world’s most iconic train experiences back under one roof with the launch today of Entire Rail Journeys, a new program providing a one-stop-shop for Australian travel agents.

    Sales and marketing director Greg McCallum says Entire Travel Group engaged Australia’s most experienced great rail expert to develop the new program, which encompasses a selection of revered rail voyages across Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australia.

    “As product manager Sana Malihi was instrumental in creating Rail Plus’ luxury rail program, which set a benchmark when it comes to international and domestic great train journeys,” McCallum, said.

    “That program was essentially derailed by the pandemic, leaving a major gap in the Australian market, which Entire Rail Journeys now fills.

    “Agents will find all of these legendary rail experiences featured on the Entire Travel Group website and we have also launched a dedicated phone line and email (rail@entiretravel.com.au), which agents can use to connect with our specialist consultants.”

    McCallum, who himself spent more than a decade at Rail Plus before serving as a regional director for Rocky Mountaineer, says Malihi will continue to use her connections and insights to develop the Entire Rail Journeys program.

    “And I’m delighted to say that she will be assisted by another luxury rail expert, Zoe Condon, who spent four years at Rail Plus and another four years at Rocky Mountaineer before joining Entire Travel Group late last year as a Travel & Product Advisor,’ McCallum, said.

    “In addition, we will in coming months be producing a dedicated Entire Rail Journeys brochure featuring many of our most popular luxury train experiences, from the Blue Train to the Golden Eagle, from the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to The Ghan.”
