Brightline’s ultra-modern trains are connecting cities in the Sunshine State like never before
Travelling from city to city across Florida should be a hassle-free, affordable and enjoyable experience, and that’s exactly what Brightline can offer your clients.
With state-of-the-art, eco-friendly trains connecting some of the state’s most popular cities, Brightline makes intercity travel a whole lot easier, and offers a five-star experience along the way. And with the recent extension of Brightline’s service all the way up to Orlando, your clients can travel from Miami to one of the world’s most sought-after theme park destinations in one seamless journey.
Plus, agents can benefit from discounted rates as well as commissionable fares.
Travel in comfort
The journey begins as soon as you set foot in one of the six Brightline stations in south and central Florida. Each station has a plethora of amenities, with touchless turnstiles that open when passengers scan their tickets, as well as spotless seating areas and a range of food and drink options from the station’s eateries.
Those travelling with heavy luggage don’t need to worry about carrying it along with them, as Brightline checks them in to be collected at the final destination.
Once passengers have boarded – a process that’s fully accessible for wheelchair users – they can sit back and relax in their spacious pre-assigned seats. These are made from hand-stitched leather for optimum comfort, and each one has its own power socket. There’s free onboard Wi-Fi too, but those who wish to disconnect can enjoy the scenic views through the window, as they travel across Florida.
The vibrant city of Miami lies at the end of the track, and Brightline travels to several of its nearby towns if your clients want to explore somewhere new or spend their holidays somewhere accessible.
Aventura, just north of Miami, is the first stop and popular for shoppers, with a famous mall of the same name, home to about 300 stores.
Fort Lauderdale, known for its network of boating canals and a thriving arts and culture scene, can be reached in just over 30 minutes. Then there’s Boca Raton, with the best of beaches, parks and golf courses, only a further 20 minutes away.
Continue up the coast to reach West Palm Beach, where golf, boutique shops, famous hotels and a growing artsy scene make this a well‑known holiday hotspot.
And as of September this year, Brightline has extended its services to Orlando. Passengers can board the train in the heart of downtown Miami, reaching Orlando in just over three-and-a-half hours, making it the perfect option for a twin-centre without the hassle of flying or navigating the roads.
Fare for all
Brightline offers two travel fares, PREMIUM and SMART, so your clients will be able to choose the one that suits them best.
PREMIUM offers a first-class experience, with a dedicated lounge to kick back and relax in, before boarding the train. These are stocked with complimentary drinks and snacks too, so passengers don’t go hungry – a perk that continues on board.
Plus, there’s extra legroom for that added comfort. SMART fares mean your customers can still travel without compromising on quality or comfort. Food and drink is still available for purchase,and the leather seats will ensure all passengers enjoy their journey, whether it’s short or long.
