Eurostar teams up with Tesco Clubcard
16 Aug 2004
Eurostar has teamed up with Tesco Clubcard to offer Clubcard holders a Eurostar standard class return leisure ticket for just £25 in Clubcard vouchers. Tickets are available from London Waterloo and Ashford, Kent, to Paris, Lille and Brussels. For this amount (£25 in Clubcard vouchers) Clubcard customers will have access to all standard class leisure fares up to £99.
Louise Pink, National Account Manager, Eurostar said: "We are always keen to find new ways to promote Eurostar by reaching both our existing and our potential customers. The opportunity to link up with Tesco and make this offering to its Clubcard holders will enable us to do just this. We are delighted that Tesco Clubcard has chosen Eurostar as a partner."
Steve McArdle, Tesco Freetime Director, said: "This partnership with Eurostar gives Tesco Clubcard a valuable new travel offering which we expect to be very popular with our customers."
"Along with the recent signings of Avis and the Yates Group this deal with Eurostar shows how Tesco Clubcard continually works to provide customers with more great ways to spend their Clubcard vouchers, we are delighted to have them on board."
Eurostar services are now up to 40 minutes faster for return journeys, as the recently opened Channel Tunnel Rail Link enables trains to run at speeds of up to 186mph (300 km/h).
Eurostar was recently named "World's Leading Rail Service" in the 2003 World Travel Awards; "Best Rail Network" at the Business Travel World Awards 2004 and "Best Rail Operator" at the Travel Weekly Globe Awards 2004.
