Virgin Trains has teamed up with Eurostar to offer improvements in journey times to Paris and Brussels and extend the range of bargain through-fares.
Eurostar introduced its new timetable this week, following completion of Eurotunnel's repairs to the Channel Tunnel after last September’s fires that disrupted traffic. Combined with the full introduction of the Virgin Trains timetable last week, journey times to the Continent have been slashed, some by around two hours.
By booking ahead, customers can take advantage of the best deals, which are subject to availability. Fares begin at approximately $114.50 round-trip.
These special fares include travel with Virgin Trains to London Euston, one-stop Underground travel to Kings Cross St Pancras, and Eurostar travel to Paris or Brussels. They can be booked online at www.eurostar.com.
