13 Jun 2013

Holidaymakers looking for a European city escape this summer can treat themselves to a luxury upgrade for less, thanks to Eurostar’s Express Sale offering 30% off Standard Premier travel to Paris, Brussels and Lille*.

A saving of 30% on Standard Premier is available for bookings to Paris, Brussels or Lille made from 13th to 24th June, for travel from 16th July to 15th September. In the quiet, spacious surroundings of Eurostar’s dedicated Standard Premier carriages, passengers have the freedom to sit back and unwind during their journey, whilst a light meal and refreshments are served at their seat – all from £74 for a one way ticket.

Eurostar passengers can also enjoy some of their chosen city’s cultural charms at a reduced rate, with 2-for-1 entry into a wide range of top museums and galleries on presentation of their Eurostar ticket. Upcoming exhibitions include Manet at the Musée d’Orsay (Paris) and Giorgio Morandi at Bozar (Brussels).

Mary Walsh, Director of Communications, said: “This Spring has proved to be one of our busiest periods so far, as more and more passengers escaped the lacklustre British weather in favour of a sunny city break in Paris or Brussels. With our special rates for Standard Premier travel, we’re offering customers heading to the continent the chance to upgrade and start their city break in style.
