Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, is celebrating its first year of services direct from London to Rotterdam and Amsterdam by releasing seats at just £35 one-way, available to book for a limited period only from 10th to 15th April.
Those looking to make the journey even more memorable can treat themselves to Standard Premier for just £79 one-way, including a light meal and refreshments served at more spacious and comfortable surroundings.
The great value fares are valid for travel between 6th May and 19th September 2019, and with a third daily service launching on 11th June, travellers will have even more choice over when they travel, making it easier to choose the environmental benefits of high-speed rail over flying. A Eurostar journey from London to Amsterdam results in 80%2 less carbon per passenger than a flight, and the third service will bring Eurostar’s capacity on the route to the equivalent of 12 flights per day.3
In its first year of service the high-speed rail service has transformed the connection between London and the Netherlands, taking passengers from the heart of London to the centre of Rotterdam in just 3h01, and Amsterdam in 3h41. Since launching in April 2018, over a quarter of a million people have travelled, the equivalent of more than 1,000 plane loads.3
