Welcome to 6 o'clock train

Not just about trains

On 6 o’clock train you’ll find all types of travel ideas not just train trips. We love all kinds of travel and will use lots of different forms of transport.

We particularly like overland travel as it lets us see so much more of a country and we’ve even been around the world without flying once.

Still, we don’t always have the time for such long trips and flying is a useful way of getting around the globe so we do that too.

Travel your way

Do you want to plan your own trips but aren’t sure where to start? Do you have a great idea for a trip but can’t find anyone who offers that exact itinerary?

You’re in the right place. Don’t compromise with your travel planning.

Create tailor-made itineraries which allow you to stretch your budget or splash out – whatever you choose.

To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
