Eurostar slash prices of seats to £29 for trips to Paris, Brussels, Lille and Calais

Taking the Eurostar is so much easier than flying, but taking the train can also often be a lot more expensive.

Eurostar have just slashed the price on thousands of fares to Paris, Brussels, Lille and Calais to a bargainous £29, making it a lot easier to travel cheaply in style.

The discounted tickets will be available on travel from September onwards, including the famously pricier months of October, November and December.

The £29 tickets might not be available for summer, but they will work on those Christmas markets…

Originally spotted by bargain hunters on deals forum HotUKDeals, savvy travellers also managed to spot £35 train tickets to Amsterdam on the Eurostar website too, although there appeared to be a higher cost on the way back (plus the fact that it’s not direct), which may deter people.

Planning on heading off to Disneyland Paris? Conveniently, the magical park has also slashed the price of its tickets at the same time, with adult passes now going for the reduced price of £38 – the same cost as a child.

Unlike affordable airlines, you’ll also get baggage included in your ticket price, with the standard Eurostar allowance being two pieces of luggage and one hand luggage.
