SNAP-up Eurostar’s lowest ever fares to Amsterdam for Valentine’s

Paris, Brussels and Lille for £25 and Amsterdam for £30
Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe for 25 years, is offering great value SNAP tickets for £25 to Paris, Brussels and Lille, or £30 to Rotterdam and Amsterdam.1 The fares are the lowest price yet for Eurostar’s direct service from London to the Netherlands, and perfect for those in need of a last minute Valentine’s gift.
An effortless Eurostar journey takes travellers from city-centre to city-centre, and includes a generous baggage allowance for less than the price of travel to the airport, car parking costs or taking a suitcase on a flight. These extras can add over £55 to the initial air ticket price.2
The fares are available through Eurostar SNAP, which offers last minute tickets at the lowest prices for those with flexibility over exactly which train they travel on. Travellers simply sign on at snap.eurostar.com, choose between either morning or afternoon travel, and then will receive confirmation of the exact train 48 hours before departure.
Available for booking from 12th to 14th February 2019, and valid for travel between 25th February and 28th March 2019, the low-cost SNAP fares make it easy to gift a romantic break for Valentine’s, whether it’s to discover Rotterdam’s design and architecture, explore the cobbled canal-side streets of Amsterdam, or indulge in Parisian patisseries.
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. Eurostar passengers can get even more value out of their ticket by taking advantage of 2 for 1 entry to Europe’s top museums across Paris, Lille, Brussels, Lyon and Marseille by simply showing their Eurostar ticket.

About Eurostar
  1. 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.
  2. The current Eurostar train was first introduced into service in 1994 carrying 750 passengers and operating at speeds of up to 300kph.  Since then, the fleet of 28 trains has carried more than 150 million passengers between London and the Continent.  Following their refurbishment these trains will continue to form a core part of the Eurostar fleet. The new e320 will carry around 900 passengers at speeds of up to 320kph.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
