Eurostar, the high-speed rail link between the UK and mainland Europe, today opens sales for connecting journeys from London to the French Alps. Tickets are now available for travel from 13th December until 3rd January 2021. Travel for the remainder of the ski season, between 4th January and 28th March 2021 will be on sale from Thursday 5th November.
Travellers looking for a comfortable and relaxing journey with space to unwind and move around can travel with Eurostar direct to Paris, before connecting to a high-speed TGV service to Chambéry, Albertville, Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne, Landry or Bourg-St-Maurice.1 The Alpine stations are just a short journey to many of Europe’s top ski resorts including Courchevel, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel and Les Arcs, avoiding airport stress and time-consuming coach transfers to the mountains.
Train travel to the Alps is the most environmentally friendly choice taking travellers from city centre to the slopes. As Eurostar is a member of Railteam, travellers can benefit from the ‘Hop on the next available train’ feature should they experience any delays or cancellations on their journey, providing peace of mind when connecting between trains.
To provide more flexibility on bookings, all Eurostar fares are now available to exchange with no fee, up to 14 days before departure.2 The flexible fares applies to all bookings until the end of March 2021 and are valid for any dates of travel at the time of purchase.
Both on board and in stations, Eurostar has introduced new hygiene measures to provide customers with a comfortable and safe experience. A new seat map ensures travellers are seated at a safe distance apart respecting social distancing guidelines. Trains are deep cleaned before every journey, and cleaning teams are on board to regularly disinfect high contact areas. All travellers must wear a mask on board and in stations, in line with government regulations.
