Eurostar's Direct £35 Return Tickets To Amsterdam From London Are Now On Sale

Eurostar's Direct £35 Return Tickets To Amsterdam From London Are Now On Sale

Girls' trip, pending! Eurostar's direct return tickets to Amsterdam are now on sale and they're priced at just £35 each way.

While a direct outbound route from London St Pancras to Amsterdam already exists, up until now, passengers have been required to change at Brussels upon their return for custom checks, before boarding a Eurostar back to London.

Under a new agreement between the UK and Dutch governments, custom checks will now take place at Rotterdam, meaning passengers can stay on the train all the way to London, without the disruption of having to change.

Aside from lugging your cases on and off different trains, it also means the journey time is drastically reduced - the convenience of which cannot be overlooked after a boozy mini break.

Currently, the return trip can take up to six hours and 33 minutes, but it's now expected to take as little as four hours and nine minutes.

It also gives you a nice few hours to get some uninterrupted shut eye, or binge-watch a few Netflix shows.

Eurostar Launches Direct Return Journeys From London To Amsterdam For £35

published at10 months ago

The change officially comes into play on 30th April, but tickets are available to purchase as of today. Added to that, there will also be a direct Eurostar from Rotterdam to London, from 18th May.

The route change will see two direct services a day, which is expected to increase to three and potentially even four.

With prices starting at just £35 each way, you could bag a return trip for just £70, which sounds very reasonable - especially considering it's a much more eco-friendly way to travel.

In fact, travelling to Amsterdam via Eurostar reduces the carbon footprint of the trip by 80 per cent, when compared with flying. *And* it's a great alternative if you're not keen on air travel.

Seriously, if we can't find anyone to come with, we're taking the trip solo.
