Virgin Trains launches its free booking portal for SMEs, Railblazers

LONDON, 2016-Jun-17 — /Travel PR News/ — Virgin Trains today announced the launch of its free booking portal for SMEs, Railblazers.

The self booking tool lets businesses reserve all their rail journeys from a single website available 24/7. Companies can add users and departments to the account to enable one central train travel tool for the whole business.

Railblazers is supported by a dedicated UK based team for clients and has lots of practical features to make business travel easier for SMEs such as allowing tickets to be collected without the card used to purchase them.

Graham Leech, Group Commercial Director said: “At Virgin Trains we know that many SMEs face challenges getting ahead in business, which is why we support them both as suppliers and as customers. We put local communities and passengers at the heart of what we do. We are fully committed to supporting small businesses in the UK by creating bespoke offers designed to enable their travel across the Virgin Trains Network, facilitating face to face meetings which are vital in securing deals and maintaining business relationships. The Railblazers portal is designed to make rail travel easier for SMEs across the UK.”

The Railblazers portal has undergone vigorous testing and feedback from businesses in order to be ready for its launch today.

About Virgin Trains
Stagecoach and Virgin are working in partnership to operate the East Coast and West Coast inter-city routes under the Virgin Trains brand. Together, they are on track to revolutionise rail travel across the UK.

The combined network connects some of the nation’s most iconic destinations including Glasgow, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds, York and London.

Virgin Trains is committed to delivering a high speed, high frequency service, offering shorter journey times, more comfortable travel and excellent customer service. Customers consistently rate Virgin Trains as one of the top long-distance rail franchise operators in the National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) commissioned by industry watchdog, Transport Focus.

On the East Coast route, £140m is being invested to create a more personalised travel experience. This includes a major fleet revamp, smarter stations and exciting new routes. From May 2016, there will be 42 additional services (22,000 extra seats) per week between Edinburgh and London. 2018 will see the introduction of completely new Azuma trains being built in the UK by Hitachi.

The West Coast route has a proud record of challenging the status quo – from introducing tilting Pendolino trains, to a pioneering automated delay repay scheme and becoming the first franchised rail operator to offer m-Tickets for all ticket types.
