As a sister company to the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, profits made from Ffestiniog Travel’s rail holidays are used for the continued preservation of the FR and WHR so by booking a rail tour or a train ticket through Ffestiniog Travel you are supporting us and our future.
The rail tour operator has experienced a challenging time during the COVID-19 crisis like most travel and tourism businesses, but it remains optimistic and is looking forward to escorting rail travellers again soon. During the pandemic the company was forced to cancel all escorted tours from March 2020 up to 31 May 2021. All customers were fully refunded quickly and efficiently. Its customer service and refund policy was applauded in the national press and Which? Travel Magazine and it received recognition awards in the Best Rail Holiday Company category in the Silver Travel Advisor Awards and British Travel Awards for 2020.
Ffestiniog Travel’s ‘escorted tours programme is due to resume from June 2021 onwards. All escorted tours can be viewed in full on the website at www.ffestiniogtravel.com.
