There is a great EuroStar sale going on that you can take advantage of only if you act fast enough. EuroStar announced a 10-day flash sale on May 9, 2017 that is scheduled to end on May 18, 2017. The sale includes 75,000 one-way tickets to Paris, Brussels, Calais, and Lille from London, England. The normal price of these tickets is £58 to £69 but you can snag one during the sale for half-price, £29.
There are, of course, some specific requirements for purchasing and using these tickets: First, you must be willing to travel between June 6 and August 31. Then there is also a £3 fee if you choose to use a credit card to book your ticket. Also, standard EuroStar passengers are limited to two-pieces of luggage in addition to their hand luggage and you must check-in 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time.
The 75,000 available £29 one-way seats are also specifically divided as to their destination with 45,000 available for traveling to Paris and 30,000 available if you would like to travel to Brussels, Calais, or Lille. So, if you would like to get one of these special priced tickets, you need to act quickly to secure your place.
If you are already considering a trip to one of these destinations, there are some great benefits to being a EuroStar passenger such as 2 for 1 museum and gallery admissions to the Bozar in Brussels, the Le Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille, and the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. To claim your 2 for 1 admission tickets, just show your EuroStar ticket at the museum ticket office.
However, if you have a different destination in mind, there are additional sales in place to help you out. If you would rather visit another Belgian station, including Antwerp, Bruges, or Ghent, you can expect to pay £35. While traveling to Avignon, Lyon, and Marseille will only set you back £45 – £49 depending on which one you choose.
The Commercial Director at EuroStar, Nick Mercer, has stated that the company intends to release quite a few value fares over the next few months to help travelers discover new places, so if you have any travel planned on EuroStar in the next few months, it bears keeping an eye on them for more special offers.
You can purchase your EuroStar tickets, and any rail tickets across Europe on Rail Europe.
