Spacious coaches, comfortable seats and a light meal for a relaxed and refreshing journey.

Travelling in Standard Premier

Sit back and relax as you travel in style. Watch the world go by in extra spacious coaches and unwind in comfortable seats while enjoying a light meal and drinks. There are lots of reasons to travel in Standard Premier: 

    • Enjoy a light meal, served at your seat

      Sit back and relax as our team serves a delicious light meal and drinks at your seat, with a choice of dishes to suit the time of day. 

      For breakfast, you'll enjoy a pastry, yoghurt and juice, with a cup of tea or coffee. And for lunch and dinner, you'll be a choice of served two light dishes and a dessert, with a soft drink, wine or beer, plus tea or coffee.

      See our Standard Premier menu here.

      You can also 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 our food on board.

    • Dedicated coaches with spacious seats and power sockets

      In the peaceful, spacious surroundings of your Standard Premier coach, you’ll enjoy the freedom to think, work or simply unwind. You’ll find power sockets at your seat, so you can stay charged up while you relax.

    • 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 your departure time. 

      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.

    • 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.


      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.
