TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION

We believe that the travel market is now so competitive and fast changing that you can get the best value for money by purchasing your flights through specialists such as Trailfinders or by surfing the Internet for budget operators to Europe etc. We know that many of you include the riding element as part of a longer trip, particularly where long haul destinations are involved and by not including external transport arrangements this gives you the flexibility to plan the trip as you would like. We will of course be happy to design a complete, extended itinerary for you if you so choose. Where you have contracted us to arrange your flights we will do so and do our utmost to source the best options in terms of cost and times to fit in with your individual itinerary.
The sites and contacts on this site are by no means exhaustive. Many we use ourselves here at Unicorn and many have been recommended by past clients, so if you have found an Internet guide to trains in Mongolia or know an expert Costa Rican flight consultant do let us know at Unicorn Trails.

TRAINS and FERRIES

Maybe you don't like flying. Or perhaps you just prefer classic travel by express train and ocean liner, where you eat in a restaurant, sleep in a bed, and get to see where you're going... Either way, this website will tell you how to travel comfortably by train and ship for many journeys where you might think that air was now the only option.
