Travelling in Standard

Standard offers you great value tickets with no hidden extra costs. Sit back, unwind and take in the scenery on route. There are lots of reasons to travel in Standard:
    • Generous luggage allowance

      Whether you're being whisked away for a romantic weekend or exploring the city with the whole family, there's no need to travel light.

      Each adult can take two pieces of luggage up to 85cm long, as well as one small piece of hand luggage. Plus, there's no restriction on liquids so you can take your favourite toiletries (and a bottle of something bubbly for the journey).

      Find out more about our luggage allowances.

    • Flexible tickets

      With our extra flexible tickets*, you can rearrange your trip without paying an exchange fee up to 7 days before departure. And all child tickets bought after 30 July 2021 can be exchanged for free at any point before travel. (If you’re exchanging your ticket for a more expensive one, you’ll just need to pay the difference in fare.)

      So, you can start planning a well-earned break safe in the knowledge that you can always change your plans. And with tickets on sale up to nine months in advance, there’s nothing stopping you filling your diary with weekends away. Find out more.

    • Enjoy a bite to eat en route

      If you find yourself feeling peckish, drop by our bar buffet, Café Métropole, to pick up hot and cold drinks, snacks, meals and sweet treats, as well as a range of beers, wines, bubbly and spirits.

      Find out more about food on board and take a look at our Café Métropole menu.

    • Choose your own seats for free

      Hoping for quality time with the kids en route or a quiet place to send an email or two? Well, you can change your seat for free after you’ve booked to find your perfect spot.

      Our seating plan shows you where you can get extra luggage space, tables for family and friends and baby changing areas.

       

    • Free wifi, all the way

      Whether you’re travelling for work or play, you can email, tweet and post all the way with our free onboard wi-fi – which even works in the Channel Tunnel (subject to connectivity).

    • Family travel made easy

      Our trains and destinations are ideal for getting away with the family. 

      Unlike airlines, you can choose your seats for free, so you can make sure you’re near baby changing facilities or sat together around a table. Simply look at our seating plan to find the best seats for your family.

      And kids under four can travel for free, provided they sit on an adult’s lap throughout the journey. You’ll also find lots of child-friendly options available at Café Métropole, our onboard bar buffet. Find our more about family travel.
       

    • Keeping you safe en route

      At Eurostar, we’re proud that our safety and hygiene measures are recognised by the World Travel & Tourism council. 

      Your wellbeing will always be our top priority. From deep cleaning our trains to filtering our onboard air, we’re committed to creating a safe space for travel. 

      We’ll also keep you informed at every step of your journey so that you arrive at the station ready to board. Find out more about how we’re helping you to travel with confidence.

    • We’re the greener way to go

      Did you know that your carbon footprint from one flight to Paris is the same as making 14 Eurostar journeys?* That’s the equivalent of travelling with us every day for two weeks. 

      We’re committed to switching entirely to renewable energy in the UK, France and Belgium by 2030. And we’re already using 100% wind power to run our trains in the Netherlands.

      Take a look at how we’re serious about sustainability.
