Utrecht/Berlin, July 12 2018
SANDEMANs NEW Europe and Eurail have joined forces in a new partnership, offering Eurail Pass holders a 20% discount on the unique walking tours offered by SANDEMANs.
SANDEMANs offers specialty tours at a fixed rate, as well as a unique tips-based model of free tours, guaranteeing the tour fits within the expectations and budget of every traveler. Providing multi-destination train travel across the continent, a Eurail Pass allows travelers of all ages to travel in and through up to 28 different European countries, and access extra benefits and discounts along their journey. With SANDEMANs, Eurail travelers get the perfect mix of history, culture, insider tips and entertainment in some of Europe's most beautiful cities, with a walking tour run by a local guide.
With over 90 different tours and over 500 tour groups daily throughout 17 European cities, SANDEMANs offers all of its European tours in English and Spanish, and in select cases, German. SANDEMANs tour destinations match perfectly with the most popular train destinations among Eurailers, including Amsterdam, Berlin, Barcelona and Paris. Reservations for tours can be made as soon as customers have booked their Eurail Pass or at a later stage, through Eurail.com and the free Eurail Rail Planner App, which has more than 2 million downloads.
Stephanie Taylor-Carrillo, Partner Relations and Communications Director for SANDEMANs NEW Europe said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Eurail. Over the 15 years we have been operating in Europe, we have seen a large number of Eurail guests on our tours. We’re delighted to now be able to offer those guests an additional benefit for joining SANDEMANs tours, and to make that natural connection between Eurail and SANDEMANs even stronger.”
Silvia Fischer, Sales & Marketing Director for Eurail Group, the company behind the Eurail Pass, said: “At Eurail, we strive to offer our customers additional high-value benefits in order to make their journey an unforgettable experience. Connecting with the local culture and people is fundamental to the motivations behind many of our travelers’ Eurail journeys, so we are truly delighted to welcome SANDEMANs as a partner of Eurail so our customers can experience first-hand a unique side to popular destinations across Europe”.
Brenda van Leeuwen, CEO for the official sales channel of the Eurail Passes, Eurail.com, says: “We are very excited to partner with SANDEMANs, which complements our travel products with a unique selection of tours and activities.
