Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions’ The Ghan resumed operation this week between Adelaide and Darwin after travel restrictions between South Australia and the Northern Territory were eased.
To celebrate, all Ghan journeys booked online or through travel agents will save up to $1,250 per person. The special fares apply to both Platinum and Gold Service and are available for travel until the end of July 2021.
Peter Egglestone, Chief Commercial Officer of Journey Beyond said the team were excited to be welcoming guests back on board.
“We share the guests’ anticipation for every journey and likewise, the disappointment when we face another suspension due to border closures.
“But our team is expert at rising to a challenge and we are determined to continue to deliver guests unforgettable rail holidays in a time when many have had to change plans or endure lockdowns, so we’re looking forward to that ‘all aboard’ call.
“These special fares are ideal for people who can travel at short notice and who may have been dreaming of a Ghan journey for a long time,” Egglestone said.
Journey Beyond has introduced JourneySafe, its new operational plan to further enhance and protect guest wellbeing while travelling. It features measures including additional stringent cleaning and sanitising, new staff training, physical distancing and ‘fit for travel’ checks.
“Our guest and crew wellbeing is imperative and so we’ve worked hard to balance the need to deliver incredible journeys while looking after our people,” Egglestone added.
