Vacations By Rail, a Great Rail Journeys Company, makes booking a train-based vacation easy by providing pre-designed itineraries and tours all over the US and the world. In addition to rail travel, river cruises and mixed transport packages are available to the discerning travel enthusiast. It’s imperative that a company providing such a large variety of booking options should have a robust site capable of handling multiple trips along with every customer’s specific requests.
In 2018, Vacations By Rail asked Red Foundry to help finish the work on their new website when their initial development partner became unavailable. Red Foundry quickly gathered the requirements, did a gap analysis, redesigned the UI, finished the remaining features, and launched the new site within a tight timeline. The site is built on the Laravel PHP framework and integrates with Softrip’s booking engine and Algolia’s enhanced search features.
