Sustainable travel across Europe from just £29

Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service, is offering great value seats to Paris, Brussels, Lille and Calais from just £29[1] each way.
Customers can also travel to Amsterdam and Rotterdam from just £35 each way following the announcement that the service will be fully direct between the UK and the Netherlands from 30th April[2].
Tickets go on sale from today (3 March) until next Wednesday (11 March) and valid for travel between 23 March – 17 June 2020, providing the perfect opportunity for a spring break[3].
Travellers looking to explore more for less can purchase an ‘Any Belgian Station’ ticket from just £39 – providing onward travel to Bruges, Antwerp or Ghent included in the fare following a quick change at Brussels station.
Standard Premier tickets are available from just £70[4] where customers can benefit from more space on board, complimentary magazines and a light meal and refreshments served at their seat.
Eurostar offers the most sustainable choice for short-haul European travel, with a journey between London and Paris resulting in 90%[5] less carbon emissions per passenger than the equivalent flight.
By choosing Eurostar, customers are also actively supporting the reforestation of woodland in Europe with a tree planted for every service that it operates across its routes.
With quick and convenient check-in up to 30 minutes before departure, a seamless city-centre to city-centre journey, a generous baggage allowance with no weight restrictions and free wi-fi and on-board entertainment, Eurostar is the ideal way to travel.

About Eurostar

  • Eurostar is the high-speed train service linking St Pancras International, Ebbsfleet International, Ashford International, Paris, Brussels, Lille, Calais, Disneyland Resort Paris, Avignon, the French Alps, Lyon, Avignon, Marseille, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
  • Eurostar was established in 1994 as a partnership between three railway companies: SNCF, SNCB and LCR (London and Continental Railways). On 1 September 2010, Eurostar became a single, unified corporate entity owned by three shareholders: SNCF, SNCB and LCR. LCR’s holding was transferred to the Treasury in 2014, and sold by the UK government to a consortium comprising Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec (CDPQ) and Hermes Infrastructure on 28th May 2015.
  • Eurostar is a founder member of Railteam, a partnership between Europe’s leading high-speed train operators that is developing simpler ways to book and travel on the fast-expanding, European high-speed rail network.
  • Eurostar and Eurotunnel are entirely separate companies.  Eurostar operates high-speed passenger trains, while Eurotunnel operates vehicle shuttle services and the Channel Tunnel itself. Eurostar is Eurotunnel’s biggest customer.
