Following the record-breaking results of The Blue Train – Travel Info workshops which concluded on the 31st August 2013, which saw a staggering 1537 participants and 834 completed evaluations with an 80% pass mark, the winners have been announced!

Herbert Prinsloo, the Train Manager of The Blue Train, visited Ms Lorette Garnett, of Club Travel ITC, at her work place in Kirstenhof, Cape Town to hand over her overall winner’s prize -  a ticket for two on board the most lavish train on the planet!

“I have been in the travel industry for over 25 years and I don’t ever remember winning anything! And to win the ultimate holiday of such luxurious magnitude – on board arguably the most luxurious train in the world, is the cherry-on-top for all my hard work over these years I guess,” beamed an obviously elated Ms Garnett.

There were also consolation for two spot winners who each received a Blue Train hamper filled with Blue Train goodies:-


1st Spot Prize Winner:

Agent:  Riana Ferreira

2nd Spot Prize Winner:

Agent:  Marijke Lombard

Hanlie Kotze, Executive Manager of The Blue Train commented, “We would like to extend our heart-felt gratitude to everyone who took time out of their busy schedule to complete the evaluations and in the process get to know more about our brand and its offering. We are very proud of these results and it is through your support and efforts that our “blue jewel” remains on track as we continue to strive to meet and exceed our valuable clients’ and guests’ expectations. We would also like to thank Travel Info for this great initiative and we hope that it will grow from strength to strength in the next coming years. Congratulations to all the winners,” concluded Kotze.
