Since launching the service in April, increasing numbers of travellers have opted to retrieve their tickets with ease, at home; at the office or anywhere they have access to a computer and a printer.

Following a significant investment at all major stations in France, UK and Belgium, travellers can now simply scan their own unique printed barcode, so making their check-in even more hassle free than before.

"'Print Anywhere' ticketing allows our travellers to save time and gives them a greater degree of flexibility and convenience."

"Station staff are finding that the majority of people arrive at Eurostar check-in with their tickets already printed – a sure sign that this initiative has been well received."

With the introduction of ‘Print Anywhere', Eurostar has ceased to send customers tickets by post, with customers also being given the choice to collect their tickets from one of the e-ticket machines at Eurostar stations.

Eurostar delivers strong leisure sales
