Fabulous travel company who met all of our wishes, wants and needs. Brilliant customer service with hints and tips information too.

Our stay at Hotel Copthorne Tara in Kensington was perfect. Its situation being just a 3 minute walk from the Underground station is ideal and so easy to find.

Hotel Direct Rail Packages

Packages are cheaper!


Hotel Direct can now book rail tickets to London from over 2500 UK rail stations offering you a one-stop option when choosing a break to the capital. Combine your rail tickets with a hotel or with theatre tickets plus a hotel to receive our special package discounts. You'll save money and time by booking all your travel needs together!

Hotel + Rail = you save money!

Hotel Direct provides rail tickets including cheaper inclusive tour fares from all 28 train operators in the UK including Great Western Railway, Northern Rail, East Midlands Trains and Virgin Trains so whether you're travelling from Penzance or Penrith, you'll get a great discount on your London rail break.

The only way to travel!


With the congestion charge and a premium on parking in central London, driving into London can be a stressful and expensive experience. However, by arriving at one of London's main stations such as Victoria or Euston you can walk straight onto the underground and be heading to your hotel with a minimum of fuss. Travellers can also use the journey to catch up on any rest, plan their itinerary, enjoy fine dining in the Pullman car or just take in views of the beautiful English countryside as they speed towards London. By catching the train visitors will benefit from shorter journey times. For example, the average journey time from Manchester to London is just 2 and a half hours by train compared to 4 hours by car. Enhance your journey even further by choosing to travel 1st Class, which can be a lot less expensive than you think.

Save more with a Railcard!


Did you know that you can save even more on your rail package by using your discount Railcard? Further discounts are available if you hold a valid railcard that is listed in the Add Railcard section when selecting your travel dates. These include Two Together Railcards, Family and Friends Railcards, Annual Gold Cards, HM Railcards and many more. Simply select the Railcard you hold when booking your rail break online, and your rail package price will be discounted accordingly. Please ensure that you take the valid Railcard with you on your journey and present with your tickets for inspection on the train.

Choose your travel times


With Hotel Direct's simple, interactive timetable it is easy to see all the available trains and choose your ideal travelling time. We will also show all possible ticket options, including our special package fares that cannot be booked separately; this means that you can select the price and level of flexibility that best suits you.

Select your seats


Hotel Direct understand that every guest has different requirements and this is catered to within our service. Booking a rail and hotel package with us, you'll be asked for your seating preferences. You can tell us if you'd prefer to have a front facing seat, a seat near a power socket or if you'd like to upgrade to a First Class ticket.
Travel safe in the knowledge that you have pre-booked allocated seats (when available). So, if you're looking for a luxury package with 1st class travel and a 5* hotel or a theatre break with inclusive rail tickets, Hotel Direct has just the package for you!

Getting your tickets


Hotel Direct offer a variety of delivery options for tickets including free 1st class postal delivery and very competitive rates on guaranteed special delivery as well as the option to print your own tickets at the station before departure. The different options are dependent upon the date of travel and we advise all customers using the self-service option to take the card that was used to make the booking as well as the reference number we provide to avoid any issues at the departure station.
