Travel Taken Care Of

Fly from a choice of UK airports at no extra cost

The Emerald Waterways experience starts long before you step foot on-board one of our award-winning Star-Ships, with all our river cruise and tour itineraries including flights and transfers as standard. Subject to availability, you may choose to fly from a choice of UK airports, including:

• Aberdeen

• Belfast

• Birmingham

• Bristol

• Edinburgh

• East Midlands

• Glasgow

• Humberside

• Leeds/Bradford

• Manchester

• Newcastle

• Norwich

• London Gatwick

• London Heathrow

• London Luton

• London Stansted

Return flights from selected UK airports are included in the price of the river cruise, and transfers are provided to and from your Star-Ship.

We believe this simplifies the holiday-planning process, allowing you to concentrate on enjoying your exploration of the world’s beautiful waterways. The carefully planned flights and transfers ensure you receive plenty of time to arrive at your Emerald Waterways Star-Ship.

Free return flights are available with all Emerald Waterways river cruises and tours, so whether you’re navigating the mighty Rhine or meandering the lazy Douro, you’ll be transported to the port of embarkation in time for the grand departure.

At all arrival airports, an Emerald Waterways representative will meet you, ready to take you direct to the docked ship. And, of course, a transfer back to the airport will also be provided at no extra cost – so you needn’t worry about making your way home, solely concentrating on enjoying your stay on the world’s beautiful waterways.

No Fly Option

Furthermore, if your party would prefer not to fly, you can travel by Eurostar on selected itineraries at no additional cost. Please note, the Eurostar option is available on our Jewels of the Rhine, Tulips of the Rhine, Holland & Belgium in Bloom, Springtime Delights and Sensations of Lyon & Provence itineraries.
