London, United Kingdom, May 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The falling value of the UK Pound against the US Dollar should not be a concern for holiday makers who want to explore the United States thanks to Great Rail Journeys.
The company which is the UK’s largest operator of holidays by rail, are still offering their USA Coast to Coast tour in 2009 for a price based on the 2008 exchange rate, which is far more cost effective now thanks to the significant shift in exchange rates. Great Rail Journeys 21 day tour which travels overland by rail from New York to San Francisco costs around 25% less than if a customer booked it independently.
All of the companies’ holidays are also escorted by a tour manager who will guide the tour through the various locations including the Grand Canyon and the Rockies as well as the USA’s most famous cities such as Washington, LA and Chicago.
Many holidaymakers are worrying that recent currency fluctuations have made it too expensive to travel far on holiday, but this is the best year to explore the US according to the company’s Marketing and Sales Director Alex Roberts:
“Thanks to the drop in the US dollar, which is making our epic Coast to Coast trip more cost effective, this is the year to discover the USA with Great Rail. A lot of holidaymakers don’t realise that the recession can make the once in a lifetime trip they always dreamed about possible, as the change in the exchange rate will actually save our customers money”
The holiday price includes flights to America, rail travel in the US, hotel accommodation, excursions, transfers and luggage handling, all arranged by Great Rail Journeys, meaning that the only additional costs will be souvenirs and some meals.
More information about the holiday can be found on the Great Rail Journeys website.
