Eurostar ending its agreement with Deutsche Bahn

Published on : Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Eurostar, a high-speed railway service connecting London with Amsterdam, Avignon, Brussels, Bourg-Saint-Maurice, Disneyland Paris, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Paris, and Rotterdam ends its agreement allowing the passengers to travel from London, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

 

 

The cross-channel high speed train operator is ending its agreement with Deutsche Bahn that allows the German rail operator to sell a wide range of tickets between London and key business and leisure cities such as Cologne, Basel and Salzburg.

 

 

Using so-called “summated fares,” passengers take the train from London St Pancras to Brussels Midi, and change there to German high-speed trains.

 

 

The prices start at under €60 (£51) one way for shorter trips, with tickets to Berlin, Munich and other more distant destinations for under €70 (£60). These are competitive with fares on British Airways, easyJet and Eurowings, the Lufthansa subsidiary. Unlike some other connecting journeys, passengers travel on a single booking – making rescheduling straightforward in the event of disruption.

 

 

But direct tickets will no longer be sold from 9 November. The German rail organisation said on social media: “Due to a system changeover at Eurostar, from 9 November, no direct tickets to London will be available”.

 

 

The move is likely to please the airlines, who are vulnerable to a switch from air to rail.
