VIP travel service
In our eyes you’re a VIP
Our chauffeur service
Start and end your river cruise in style with our included Saga VIP travel service, with unlimited mileage.
We’ll arrange for an experienced chauffeur to pick you up from your home, or a family or friend’s house if you prefer, so you can enjoy a carefree journey to your chosen airport or UK departure point.
Your chauffeur will call you to confirm a collection time and any local directions if necessary, and when they arrive, they’ll load your luggage into the vehicle.
When you arrive in the UK after your holiday, your chauffeur will be there to greet you ready for your journey home.
Travel by rail
We can organise standard class rail travel from your local station to your departure point. Just leave it to us and we’ll sort out all the timings and arrangements.
Complimentary airport parking
If you prefer to drive yourself, we can arrange complimentary parking at the airport. We can also arrange parking close to the Eurotunnel terminal in Folkestone if you are travelling via Eurostar (unfortunately we are unable to arrange parking at the Eurostar terminals).
Luggage collection and delivery service
Available when you travel by Eurostar or fly
The Baggageman service collects your luggage from your home before your departure and delivers it to your ship or extension hotel ready for your arrival, so you can enjoy a relaxed journey without the hassle of carrying your heavy bags. At the end of your holiday, your luggage will be transported home for you.
For all other cruises you can choose to add this service for a supplement.
Our complimentary Saga VIP travel service includes a return chauffeur service from your home to your international airport, return chauffeur service to your local airport for an included domestic flight to your main departure airport, return chauffeur service to your UK departure point (such as a Eurostar or ferry terminal), standard class rail travel from your local station to your UK departure point, or complimentary parking at the airport if you’d prefer to drive yourself. Included economy class domestic flights are subject to availability in our designated booking class. If this is not available at the time of booking, we’ll advise you of the additional flight supplement. Depending on the time of your domestic or international flight you may need overnight accommodation, which will be at your own additional cost.
Our Saga VIP travel service is available to anyone in mainland England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Wight and Channel Islands. We’re not currently able to offer the service to those in the Scottish islands, Isle of Man, Sark or the Isles of Scilly.
Saga reserves the right to select the most appropriate form of transport and/or domestic airport for your journey. You could be sharing the journey with up to three (or very occasionally five) other Saga passengers in one of our larger MPVs. Alternatively, you can choose to have the vehicle for just you and your travelling companions at a price of £1.85 a mile.
The right to refuse the chauffeur service is at our discretion. The Saga VIP travel service operates in the UK only.
