Eurostar and Thalys join forces!

Your European trips just got simpler: Eurostar and Thalys have joined forces under the Eurostar name!

London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Cologne are just some of the destinations that are within reach as Eurostar expands across the continent.

There are now two types of Eurostar trains: Eurostar’s classic blue trains for journeys to/from the United Kingdom, and red trains (formerly Thalys trains) for all other trips to France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.

So, what’s changed? 😎

✔ You’ll be able to buy tickets for all routes that used to be operated by Thalys with Eurostar (for example, trains from Paris to Amsterdam)

✔ There will be 2 separate sets of Eurostar travel classes: Standard, Comfort and Premium for trains in Europe, and Standard, Standard Premier and Business Premier for trains to/from London.

Boarding the train will look different depending on where you’re headed: if you’re traveling to/from the United Kingdom, you’ll need to check-in and go through security

✔ All travelers, regardless of destination, can sign up to Club Eurostar (Eurostar’s loyalty scheme).

The Chunnel

The Channel Tunnel provides a permanent link between the UK and France. Nicknamed the "Chunnel" (short for Channel Tunnel) this vital rail link runs from Folkestone, England to Calais, France.

The tunnel opened in 1994 and at 50.45km (31.34 miles) it is the longest underwater tunnel anywhere in the world. 

Fun facts about the Chunnel

  1. There's more than one tunnel, there's actually three. Two for trains and one for service access. 
  2. The two train tunnels are 24-feet in diameter with the northern tunnel taking passengers from England to France. Whilst the southern tunnel carries passengers from France to England.
  3. The rock removed during construction of the Chunnel was used to make Samphire Hoe Park, now a flourishing nature reserve.
  4. Chris Froome cycled through the service tunnel, completing the journey in just 55 minutes!
  5. At its deepest point the tunnel is 75m below the seabed.
  6. The average journey time through the Chunnel is 35 minutes.
  7. It cost £15 billion to build; the original budget was £3.6 billion.
  8.  During construction some 13,000 people were employed to build the tunnel.
  9. Way before the Chunnel was built, the first design for it was completed in 1802.
  10. Each year 26 million red roses are delivered through the Chunnel to the UK.

Eurosnap tickets

Snap Eurostar, or ‘Eurosnap’ as it was known, was an offer by Eurostar allowing travelers to access last-minute discount fares for trains with spare capacity.

Snap fares were a cheap way of taking the Eurostar. Travelers would submit the day that they wanted to travel, and Eurostar would pick the time. One-way tickets could go for as little as £25! Snap fares were great for travelers that were not fussed about the time that they travelled.

Unfortunately, ‘Eurosnap’ doesn’t exist anymore, but Eurostar have been known to hold flash sales for tickets, with the cheapest one-way tickets costing £29. Keep an eye on our Deals & Discounts page for the latest Eurostar deals or learn how you can get cheap Eurostar tickets in a snap with us.
