06 Feb Incentive destinations you don’t have to fly to
Reducing the carbon footprint of your next incentive programme is not always as straight forward as you might think, but why not try taking your group to a destination they don’t have to fly to? See our top three below!
Believe it or not, there’s a direct train line from London Kings Cross to Gleneagles and you’ll get there in just 5 and a half hours. Described as the “Riviera of the Highlands”, Gleneagles is a prestigious golf and spa resort like no other in the UK. As a member of Leading Hotels of the World, Gleneagles continues to offer an unrivalled array of attractions, including luxury hotel accommodation, a range of bespoke suites, three championship golf courses, an award-winning spa, and Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, the only restaurant in Scotland to hold two Michelin stars.
Ferry routes from Poole and Portsmouth make Jersey a super accessible destination from the UK and one you might not have considered for an incentive programme. Jersey is described as an island that is small on size, but big on personality and where the sea is never more than 10 minutes away. Treat your group to a stay in one of the islands gorgeous boutique hotels, dinner in one of the 150 restaurants and liberate them with some exciting ocean-based activities. Oh and if you want to take your group away in August, the famous Battle of the Flowers is an experience not to be missed!
The latest destination to be added to the Eurostar route from London St. Pancras International is the Dutch capital! You’ll get there in as little as 4 hours and 38 minutes and the excitement can start the second you step into the carriage. Customised headrests, onboard activities and entertainment are just a couple of the extra’s available to groups. Once in Amsterdam, take your guests on a whirlwind tour and explore everything the city has to offer – from canal tours, UNESCO world heritage sites to delicious cuisine and wild parties!
