The ten millionth traveller is expected to travel on High Speed 1 on Friday 19 December, the day that marks the beginning of the Christmas and New Year rush to the Continent. The opening of Britain's first high-speed line has been a resounding success for Eurostar, with huge growth in travellers from the Midlands and North of England taking advantage of the ease of connections at London's St Pancras International and the shorter journey times to mainland Europe.

Eurostar's Communications Director, Simon Montague, said: “We're really pleased that 10 million travellers have now chosen to cross the Channel by high-speed rail. It's clear evidence that high-speed trains offer travellers a more convenient, greener and more enjoyable journey. Eurostar is also a much more punctual way to travel – an important factor for travellers over the holiday season - and fares start from just £59 return.”

Eurostar will be running services throughout the Christmas and New Year period, with the exception of 25 December when there will be no services. A Sunday timetable will operate on 26 December. Due to engineering works taking place in the Channel Tunnel, Eurostar will operate a reduced timetable on 30 December and 31 December.
