‘Eurostar For Business’ platform launches to support business travel
New tool offers multiple benefits for business bookings
Eurostar, the high-speed rail link between the UK and mainland Europe, is launching an exclusive new booking platform for business travellers. In a first for Eurostar, the new portal has been designed with business travel in mind, offering organisations of any size a seamless start to their travel experience with all bookings easily accessible in one place.
For every 15 bookings each company makes, free upgrades or tickets are unlocked for the next trip so that those that travel more frequently can experience higher classes of service and help their travel budgets go further.
Find out more about Eurostar’s classes of service at eurostar.com
- An upgrade to Standard Premier is offered after every 15 return trips in Standard class
- An upgrade to Business Premier is offered after every 15 return trips in Standard Premier
- A free Business Premier ticket is offered after 15 return trips are booked in Business Premier
Businesses simply sign up for a single account using a company email address. Once registered, account admins can book travel on their colleagues’ behalf or individual employees can manage their own bookings. A single dashboard shows all bookings in one place, making it easy to track budgets or make changes to existing bookings.
Organisations signed up to the portal will also gain access to tailored content as well as exclusive promotional fares, ensuring they are being rewarded for choosing Eurostar for their business trips. There are 400 eVouchers worth £25 available to the first companies to sign up.1
Travellers can also sign up to the Club Eurostar rewards scheme, allowing them to earn points from their business bookings which can be redeemed for planning personal trips or upgrades.
The new platform is available now at eurostar.com/uk-en/eurostar-for-business.
