Eurostar slashes prices on tickets to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam in new sale

Eurostar has slashed prices on heaps of popular destinations including Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam in its latest sale.

The high-speed rail service currently has tickets from £29 each way to Paris, Brussels, Lille and Calais up for grabs.

It's also got fares from £35 each way to Amsterdam and Rotterdam, which includes the new direct services launching in April.

All of the discounted fares are already available to book on the Eurostar website but you'll need to do so by the 11th March when the sale ends.

There's quite a generous window of travel to choose from, with deals on select dates from the 23rd March until the 17th June 2020. (Except for Amsterdam and Rotterdam, with the window starting from the 18th May).

  • Where to go on holiday in April including destinations where it's hot and sunny

  • New direct flights between the UK and Faroe Islands to launch for summer 2020

There are plenty more deals to be found too.

For example, if you want to treat yourself, there are Standard Premier fares to Paris and Brussels from £70, which include more legroom, complimentary magazines and a light meal and refreshments served at your seat.

Always wanted to explore Belgium? You can bag 'Any Belgian Station' tickets from £39 which includes onward travel to Bruges, Antwerp or Ghent, with a change at Brussels.

At the moment, Eurostar's schedule has been unaffected by coronavirus outbreaks as there are no FCO restrictions against travelling to France, Belgium and the Netherlands. (However, there have been cases of coronavirus in these countries).

The company says that it is monitoring the situation – and has a dedicated coronavirus page including its policy regarding changing travel dates or cancelling a trip. 

It's likely that changes would only occur if the FCO were to change its advice and advise against travel to one of the countries.
