Belmond British Pullman has round-trip journeys & dining experiences departing London Victoria Station. Restored to their former glory, the Belmond British Pullman’s carriages are as famous today as in the heyday of train travel. Whether you prefer afternoon tea, flowing champagne, or both—as many guests do—there’s a journey for everyone. Whichever you choose, we guarantee that you’ll be whisked back to a more elegant era.
Our luxury travel concierge is an official member of the Belmond Bellini Club. This means that if you make your next Belmond booking via our agents, we can secure you free loyalty-style benefits (on top of your own status and membership benefits), room upgrades and perks, for no extra cost. Typically, our free benefits include:
- VIP welcome treats with a local taste
- Buffet or full breakfast daily for two
- Welcome letter from General Manager
- Space available complimentary upgrade on arrival
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Clients who spend a min. of US$5,000* at any one property or tour are eligible to receive a US$500 gift voucher for future travel of $2,500 or more at a different Belmond property (to be booked by the same agent)
- Premium Amenities
- $90 fully flexible hotel/resort credit per junior suite or room, per stay
- $200 fully flexible hotel/resort credit per full suite, per stay
We also have direct access to all the hotel, train, and cruise general managers via the Bellini club, which helps us answer any questions you have and fix any issues that crop up. We outline how to find the best special offers & discounts on Belmond British Pullman trains in more detail below:
1. Get Exclusive Free Benefits With A Luxury Travel Agent
As outlined above, you can take advantage of free benefits at all Belmond hotels, on all Belmond train journeys, and on Belmond river cruises by booking with our luxury travel agency. It really is that easy, and the rates you pay will be the same as those on the hotel website, but our benefits will make your journey much better.
In fact, we made use of these free benefits on our own personal stay at the Belmond Cipriani in Venice which remains one of my most exquisite hotel experiences (pictured above).
2. Book A Special Offer
Offers for the Belmond British Pullman round-trip journeys & dining experiences include 50% off companion fare for selected journeys. There are also 4 for 3 discounted offers if you book a party of four. Ask our luxury travel concierge agents for current special offers. The Royal Scotsman has similar special offers.
At the time of writing, the journeys offered are Christmas and New Year’s Eve day trips, which come in at under £500 per person, which is a great price!
3. Book Early
Belmond trains run at a high occupancy rate. I regularly recommend clients who book their journey with our luxury travel concierge to book as soon as the rates come out. This can be a year in advance! It is certainly not worth holding out for a last-minute discount as these magical discounts don’t usually come up in popular routes, particularly in the high season.
4. Bag A Bargain At Our Travel Auction
We have loads of luxury hotel stays in our luxury travel auction, which offers a genuine and massive discount at certain hotels, including Belmond-branded stays. These are one-off items, so when they’re gone, they’re gone. Our auction also offers luxury stays beyond the Belmond brand, so it is worth looking around as there may be a hotel stay that appeals to you.
5. Look Out For Discounted Advance Purchase Rates
If you are booking in advance and are sure of your dates, you should take advantage of advance purchase discounted rates. This is one of the few ways to get a cheaper journey. Advance purchase rates offer anywhere from 10-50% discount off the usual prices. You must be sure of your dates because there are no refunds on most advance purchase rates once you have booked in.
6. Book For A Larger Group
Many of the Belmond train special offers involve a discount if you book for a larger group. One special offer currently live (at the time of writing) is the option to book a private carriage on certain journeys at exclusive rates.
7. Stay Shorter
Conversely, if you are booking with a limited budget, you might want to consider a shorter journey or even just a meal celebration day trip on a Belmond British Pullman train.
8. Holiday Out Of The Main Season
When holidays are unpopular (maybe January and most of the early spring), prices tend to be cheaper and special offers are more plentiful.
9. Be Flexible
While New Year’s Eve might be your preferred time for a meal on a Belmond British Pullman train, you might find that a meal just before Christmas is considerably cheaper. If you are flexible, it is easier to snag a bargain!
10. Promo Codes
There may corporate promo discount codes which you can use on belmond.com, although we are not aware of these. As any corporate discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge, we suggest asking for a free quote so you can compare prices and benefits and get the full picture before booking.
Note: Benefits offered correct at the time of writing but may be amended at discretion of the vendor. Any auction prices listed correct at time of publication, but will be subject to change.
