As part of a commitment to greater transparency, Eurostar is helping travellers find better deals, by simplifying its fare structure. Travellers can expect more flexibility with the removal of “stay away” conditions such as Saturday Night Away, One Night Away, Midweek Day Return and Weekend Day Return.

Nick Mercer, Eurostar's Commercial Director, commented:

"We want to help travellers who are planning a tour of Europe or who need the flexibility to return by a different route, by making low priced single fares available."

“We hope this greater range of fare options will allow travellers to make even more use of Europe's high-speed rail network and exploit the environmental advantages of train over plane for seamless rail journeys.”

As part of the changes and in a move that more accurately reflects the product offering, Leisure Select fares have increased. The new lead-in fare for Leisure Select return travel from London – Paris/Brussels is £175 return. Passengers travelling Leisure Select benefit from more spacious seats, roomier carriages, a 3-course meal with wine, complimentary newspapers and magazines, and excellent ‘at seat' service.

Eurostar continues to offer its widely available lead-in return fare of £59 which has gone unchanged for over six years.
