Get your kicks ready for a springtime amble down the Champs-Elysées: Eurostar has launched its latest sale, and it’s giving away 48,000 seats to destinations across Europe for just £35 each way. But you’ll have to be (reasonably) quick – the sale is only on for a week.
Eurostar is offering standard-class tickets for around a tenner less than its usual cheapest fare (£44.50). That price will get you from London to culture capitals Paris and Brussels, as well as Lille, a studenty city near the French-Belgian border.
In our current era of climate crisis, travelling by train and reducing the amount of air travel has never been more necessary. Trains are far better for the planet than planes, emitting much less CO2. And let’s be honest, they’re much nicer, too: less faff, more space, just good vibes all round.
Anticipating high demand in the coming months, Eurostar has ramped up the number of trains per day between London and Paris. And to help cope with ongoing uncertainty around borders and travel, all of its tickets come with flexible booking and can be changed up to a week before your date of travel.
Eurostar’s sale covers dates stretching from February 21 to May 19. In other words, you could be atop the Eiffel Tower, sauntering around the Grand-Place de Bruxelles or gazing at masterpieces at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in basically no time at all. But like we say, you’ll have to be quick – the sale starts today and ends on February 8.
