Eurostar In brief                      
Eurostar is the high-speed passenger train service between London and Paris, and London and Brussels. Their trains have more capacity than a jumbo jet - 766 seats per train! Travelling at up to 300km/hr, it takes just 2h 15 to Paris, and 1h 51 to Brussels, and with 30 or more services a day, it’s easy to take a day trip.

Before you board
The Stations:
» Eurostar’s main stations, Paris Gare du Nord, Brussels Midi/Zuid and London St Pancras International, are all located in the centre of the city. 
» Each Eurostar station has good public transport links and taxi ranks. 
» In City centers, Eurostar stations look like a mall with a lot of shops, and WiFi access. 
If you’re travelling in Business Premier, you can use the dedicated lounges in each station.

Check-in & Boarding
» We recommend you allow 45 minutes to check in (10 minutes, if you’re travelling in Business Premier). Non-EU citizens will need to fill in a landing card for immigration.
» Don’t forget you’ll be carrying your own luggage, so make sure you can lift it up into the train - it’s a steep step.
» Aboard Eurostar, there are luggage storage facilities at the end of each carriage, and in the overhead racks.

On Board
» Meals reflect the time of day, ranging from hot or cold breakfasts in the morning to three-course meals from late afternoon onwards. If you have special dietary requirements, please mention them at the time of booking.
