Teleportation might be handy every now and again, but the process of travelling can be as enjoyable as the end result if you do it right. With transport options like planes, trains, automobiles and even ships to choose from, your holiday can start before you've even reached your destination.
Travelling by air is the most popular way of going abroad for a reason. It's affordable, fast and safe, but it also comes with great bird's-eye views. If you're lucky enough to have a window seat, you'll be able to lap up the lakes, rivers, mountains, and other beautiful landscapes that pass beneath you. If you're flying before dawn, look out for stunning sunrises, while at dusk you'll be able to watch captivating sunsets that make for postcard-worthy photographs.
Why not skip the airport, hop on a train from your local station and jump on the Eurostar in the heart of London to escape to one of Europe's most charming cities? Not only will you not have to worry about baggage weight restrictions, but in some cases (pun not intended), these trains are actually quicker and greener than flying. With high speeds of up to 300km/h and routes across Paris, Brussels, Lille, Disneyland Paris, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the South of France and Calais, you'll be able to sit back, relax and enjoy your journey under the English Channel and through beautiful European countryside.
Did someone say roadtrip? Enjoy the freedom of the open road by travelling by car, to your next holiday destination. Whether you’re catching the Ferry or driving through EuroTunnel, or taking the Eurostar or aeroplane and completing your journey by there are tons of European destinations within a 8 hour drive from London. E.g.

You can book cabins on board brand new ships, which have the latest and most exciting entertainment, to make your journey as enjoyable as the destination itself. Rather than spend it watching the clouds through the aeroplane window, you'll be able to enjoy an enormous range of activities as you travel including swimming, rock climbing, shopping and shows, or if that's not your thing, just sit back, listen to the waves and enjoy the sea view.
