Thalys becomes Eurostar
Eurostar and Thalys have joined forces under the Eurostar name
Welcome to a new era for European train travel
Hello and a warm welcome to the new-look Eurostar – we’ve relaunched with a brand new website and app!
Thalys is now Eurostar. And that means one single rail network connecting France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and the UK.
What’s changing now that Thalys has become Eurostar?
Eurostar for everyone: all trains now carry the Eurostar name and new logo.
More travel opportunities: London and Lille are now part of our network.
The trains’ colours: trains serving London are blue, while those serving France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany remain red.
A new-look joint reward programme: My Thalys World has become Club Eurostar.
Our bar has a new name: the Welcome Bar is now called Eurostar Café.
Thalys Neige and Thalys Soleil trains: we still run seasonal services from Belgium and the Netherlands to ski destinations and the south of France, but under the names Eurostar Snow and Eurostar Sun.
Thalys Corporate Fares: great corporate fares are still available with even more opportunities for smooth business trips.
The Thalysnet on-board portal: this has been renamed Eurostar Onboard which you can connect to using wi-fi during your journey.
