Business Premier

Enjoy a bit of luxury and total flexibility as you treat yourself to an extra special trip.

Travelling in Business Premier

If travelling in style is your thing, then Business Premier is the travel class for you. Business Premier gives you freedom: the freedom to travel according to your schedule, to speed through fast-track ticket gates and to relax in our exclusive Business Premier lounges. From your reclining seat on board, you’ll enjoy space, comfort and time to work or unwind. There are lots of reasons to travel Business Premier:

  1. Enjoy a three course meal, served with champagne

    From hearty breakfasts to indulgent three-course course meals for lunch and dinner, our Business Premier menus have been designed with Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc OBE.

    We’ll serve drinks throughout your journey and there’s a wide range of choices – from tea, coffee and soft drinks to beer and champagne. What better way to get set for the day ahead or just unwind on the home straight?

    See our Business Premier menu here.

  2. Use our exclusive Business Premier lounges

    Start your journey in style, relaxing with tasty treats, a wide selection of drinks and a range of magazines and newspapers in our exclusive Business Premier lounges.

    The Paris and London lounges have their own cocktail bars, where you can sip on something shaken or stirred by our expert mixologist before departure. Just don’t forget there’s a train to catch...

    Business Premier lounges are available to Business Premier travellers and Eurostar™ Carte Blanche holders. You'll find them in our London, Paris and Brussels departure lounges.

    There’s no Eurostar Business Premier lounge at Amsterdam or Rotterdam. But you can access the NS Lounge at both stations by showing your ticket to a member of staff.

  3. Enjoy complete freedom and flexibility

    We know your plans can change at the drop of a hat, and that’s why Business Premier offers tickets that are fully flexible. You can exchange or get a refund for your ticket before and after departure.

    If you’re travelling between London and the Netherlands, you can get a refund, or exchange your ticket up until departure. You can also exchange your ticket to travel on our indirect route from the Netherlands to London. You’ll need to take a Thalys train from the Netherlands to Brussels and change onto a Eurostar train there.

    Find out more about our luggage allowances.
  4. Dedicated fast-track ticket gates

    The dedicated Business Premier ticket gates close shortly before departure, so you can make the most of your time before heading to the station.

    Simply scan your ticket at the gate, then breeze straight through security and passport control and into the Business Premier lounge.

  5. Boarding guarantee

    If you’d like to switch for an earlier or later train on the day you’re travelling, we guarantee to find you a seat, even if Business Premier is full.

    So if your meeting overruns or finishes early, you won’t need to worry – just come to the station and one of our team will help.

    Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer this guarantee for trains to and from the Netherlands.

  6. 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 three 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).

  7. 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.

*The analysis of Eurostar versus air emissions has been calculated in an independent analysis by Paul Watkiss Associates Ltd in 2020, based on 2019 CO2e emissions. Comparison between Eurostar and aviation is made based on the kg of greenhouse gas emissions [CO2(e)] per passenger on the same one-way journey. The calculation is based on aviation CO2e emissions from the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) calculator, and train CO2e emissions calculated using Defra methodology for the UK, and the IEA (International Energy Agency) for France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
