What’s Standard on Eurostar?
You’re ready to travel onboard Eurostar – the world’s finest rail service. Since 1998, over 75 million passengers have enjoyed this engineering marvel. Whisking travelers through the Chunnel at record-breaking times and trains big enough to dwarf a jumbo jet.
What’s the Chunnel? Consisting of three interconnecting tubes: a rail track for travel in each direction and one service tunnel. The length of the tunnel is 31 miles long, but only 23 miles are underwater. The average depth is 150 feet under the seabed. The Eurostar only spends 20 minutes of its journey in the tunnel.
Eurostar runs from London to Paris and vice versa, every 30 minutes during peak hours and approximately once per hour during non-peak time. During the peak summer season, up to 24 trains run daily to Paris.
From London to Brussels and vice versa, service is offered approximately every 2 hours. During the peak summer season, up to 10 trains can run daily to Brussels.
All classes of travel are entitled to two pieces of luggage and a carry-on bag. On board you can expect comfort, convenience and value. You can enjoy the bar car and purchase snacks and refreshments from the trolley car when it comes to your seat. Breakfast is served before 11:00am, snacks are served between 2:00pm and 4:30pm and dinner after 4:30pm.
Ready to check in? Holding a standard class ticket gives you 45 minutes to check-in before your train departs. If you’re the type that always runs late, a Business Premier ticket reduces this time to just 20 minutes. Remember, a Standard Class ticket is non-refundable and you won’t have access to the Eurostar Lounge.
Even in Standard Class, there’s nothing standard about traveling on Eurostar. Pack your bags and get on board.
