They say it isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey. That’s certainly true when it comes to luxury travel. Whether you’re heading off to a tropical island or looking to commute in ultimate comfort, both the business traveller and the vacationer want to arrive at their destination feeling refreshed and relaxed. And, if you’re travelling for pleasure we think the pleasure should start when your journey begins. Here’s how we recommend you travel in style.
Five great ways to travel in style
Luxury train travel
What could be more stylish and romantic than a luxurious trip on a vintage train harking back to an era when train travel was an elegant and refined affair and people still dressed for dinner. Expect personal service, exquisite food and crisp white linens.
When it comes to slow travel what could be more memorable than a journey on The Maharajas’ Express, India. If however, you prefer your luxury with a more modern slant check out Train Suite Shiki Shima, Japan. But let’s not forget the name that is most synonymous with the golden age of travel, the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

Hire a Chauffeur
Hiring a chauffeur is a great option if you’ve got a business trip to a big city lined up. By having your own driver, a lot of stress is taken off your hands. You don’t have to worry about getting lost on the unfamiliar roads, confusing one-way systems, or finding a parking spot. You can just sit back, relax and get to exactly where you need to be. Plus, if you find the right driver, they’ll be able to point you in the direction of some hidden gems, that only a local would know.
Arrive by Helicopter
Nothing makes an entrance like a helicopter. If you need to get somewhere fast, it’s the perfect option. You don’t have to worry about traffic, delays or boarding times. You can get to where you need to be in relatively no time at all. All you need to do is get yourself to the helipad. A great bonus is the stunning views you’ll see along the way. Of course, the views alone reason for your trip. Imagine arriving at your ski resort by helicopter or seeing the Grand Canyon or New York from the air.
For long-haul journeys, a more practical option would be a private jet. You don’t have to adhere to a commercial airline schedule. You get to pick when you want to fly, weather permitting of course. Whether you’re travelling for business or leisure, Chapman Freeborn can offer you a private jet charter to suit all of your needs. Whether you’re flying to Japan on business or Australia for an extended holiday, travel in comfort and style, with plenty of legroom and in-flight services tailored to your specific requirements.
Is there anything quite as idyllic as sailing through crystal clear blue waters, with the time just melting away? With your own yacht, island hopping has never been so easy. You’ve got all the time in the world to glide across the ocean, picking and choosing where to stay. You won’t need to worry about booking a hotel, as the yacht itself will be blissfully comfortable.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can take your yacht further afield. Some entrepreneurs are sailing into uncharted waters in their super yachts making some truly spectacular memories.
When it comes to luxury travel you’re spoilt for choice.
