Statesman Rail and Saphos Trains cancel tours for "wellbeing of customers"

Rail tour promoters Statesman Rail and Saphos Trains have cancelled all trains due to operate between 20 March and 10 May due to coronavirus.

In a statement, Statesman Rail said: “As a professional travel promoter, we take the current situation regarding the Covid-19 virus very seriously and as everyone is aware the situation has become more serious and widespread since our last statesman was issued on 10 March.

“The health and wellbeing of our valued customers and employees is of paramount importance and for that reason we have made some further temporary amendments to our ‘Terms & Conditions of Booking and Travel’.

“All trains due to operate between 20 March and 10 May have been cancelled and every customer will receive a letter offering a choice of either an immediate 100% refund, or a transfer onto another train operating in 2020.

“A decision regarding trains due to operate after 10 May will be made in a few weeks as the situation develops, and we will keep customers updated.”
