UK Rail & Eurostar Reservations
Our rail solution is primarily delivered through CTI Sherpa™. However for those preferring an offline approach our dedicated rail experts are on hand via telephone.
A Tailored Approach to your Rail Requirements
Our rail system allows us to deliver tickets in a variety of ways such as:
- Fast ticket machines at stations
- Corporate office foyer ticket machines for heavy rail usage.
- Print at home
- First class post
- Courier delivery
Booking Flexibility using TravelCanvas™
The TravelCanvas™ approach within CTI Sherpa allows bookers to search, compare and book many rail journeys starting and ending at different locations at the same time. There are many advantages to this approach beyond the speed of a booking, including being able to ensure that colleagues are sat next to each other even though they join the train at different locations.
Transaction cost savings through ‘Basket Pricing’
CTI Sherpa also offers ‘basket pricing’ for rail bookings. This means that each journey can be added to the basket and checked-out in one click. A maximum of 8 rail bookings can be made from one basket. The advantage is that our clients can save on the standard transaction costs by as much as 70%!
This approach is in contrast to most other rail solutions that require you to go through a complete booking process one journey at a time and therefore charging the standard transaction cost each time.
Using the CTI Sherpa knowledgebase we can interpret a rail booking search and where possible offer split ticket pricing that is often cheaper than a single ticket journey. This is particularly relevant when rail bookings are made at peak times. Where allowable, the knowledgebase will identify saving opportunities where 2 tickets are cheaper than one and make them available to book.
Eurostar bookings can be booked through your travel team or through CTI Sherpa.
