Travel made easy

Executive home pick-up service - Avalon aim to make your travel arrangements as smooth as possible with their included private home pick-up service. With a driver to load and unload your luggage, a private, air-conditioned car will take you to and from your international departure point. This service is available within 100 miles of your home at no extra cost. 

Fly from your local airport - Avalon are delighted to work with some of the world’s favourite airlines with flights from a range of regional airports to make your journey even easier. Call Avalon for details.

No-fly holidays - Avalon know that flying isn’t for everyone. That’s why they have a wide range of cruises that give you the option of travelling by rail. Depart from London’s St Pancras International station, or Ebbsfleet if available, and you could be in Paris in just over two hours.

Tailor your travel - On an Avalon river cruise, you have the freedom to tailor your holiday as you wish:

Pre and post holiday hotel stays - why not extend your holiday with extra hotel nights before and/or at the end of your holiday? Avalon work with renowned names in the hotel business, such as Hilton and InterContinental.

Too many hotel nights? - some of their holidays include hotel stays. If that doesn’t suit you, they can just book the cruise portion for you.

Make your own way - the brochure prices include flights, but you don’t have to take their package. Avalon give you the option to book the holiday without the flights.

Under your own arrangements - if you’d like to explore at your own pace after your holiday with Avalon, they’ll happily extend your flights for you.
Note: Eurostar travel from St Pancras or Ebbsfleet is available on the following river cruises: Paris to Normandy, Burgundy & Provence, Tulips of Northern Holland, Tulip Time, Grand France, Paris, Moselle & The Rhine.
