Hire a private carriage

If you’ve got a large group to move, or VIPs to transport, and are looking for a truly bespoke travel experience, we’re here to make it happen, and we want you all to feel like a rock stars too. You can even take it to the next level (perhaps you are an actual rock star), by hiring your own exclusive carriage. Forget limousines, this is how you make an entrance.

Your very own carriage

With Red Carpet, your large group (or VIPs) can travel in the privacy and security of their very own train carriage. They'll have the freedom to work or play as much as they like, without any interruptions. Drop us a line and we'll help you make the arrangements (you might even be able to hire the whole train)!

Bespoke travel arrangements

The Red Carpet treatment is all about you and your group. We start by getting to know you all, your special requirements, names, likes, dislike, star signs... ok - not star signs, unless you're a group of astrologers. The point is, we want you to have an unforgettable travel experience. So we start off by listening to what you actually want, then planning to perfection.

Onward travel

We’ll also help you organise your onward journey for your group. So if you need a large luxury coach, private limos for VIPs, or even a hot air balloon, just tell our dedicated booking team what you need. They'll pull out all the stops to make your onward journey as awesome as your Red Carpet experience.
