Snap Eurostar, or ‘Eurosnap’ as it was known, was an offer by Eurostar allowing travellers to access last-minute discount fares for trains with spare capacity.
Snap fares were a cheap way of taking the Eurostar. Travellers would submit the say 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 travellers 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.
