A partnership announced between Ensemble Travel Group, Amtrak Vacations, and Yankee Holidays will expand Ensemble members’ portfolio of rail and independent travel packages throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Through Ensemble, Amtrak and Yankee will offer more than 300 packages to over 40 destinations in North America, with packages ranging from independent and fully escorted to rail-and-sail and stand-alone rail journeys.
Suzanne Hall, senior director of Ensemble’s hotel and land division, said that the packages offered will allow travellers to “go local” in their voyages closer to home, reflecting current trends in domestic travel.
In addition to several training sessions in the coming months for Ensemble members, Amtrak Vacations and Yankee Holidays are among the sponsors of the 2014 Ensemble Travel Group International Conference in Palm Springs set for Oct. 26-30. Frank Marini, president of Yankee Leisure Group, will address the audience during the annual convention.
