Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, is launching a new, lower and simpler Pass holder fare for all Interrail travellers, having joined Eurail Group G.I.E. from 1 January 2017.

Interrail Pass holders looking to discover multiple destinations as they hop on and off Europe’s rail network can secure Eurostar seats from £23 one way in Standard class or £29 in Standard Premier with their Interrail Pass, making it easier to incorporate a high-speed journey under the Channel into their unique rail journey.

The fares will be available between London, Ebbsfleet and Ashford International and Paris, Brussels, Lille, Calais and Disneyland Paris.

Since January 2016, Interrail Passes have been available for use in and out of their country of origin, so travellers can go direct from their local station to a far flung destination, stopping to explore the cultures, cuisine and characters of Europe along the way.

With Interrail Passes available from three days to one month, they offer great savings for shorter breaks as well as longer escapes, and have a number of bespoke offers for youths, over 60s and families, designed with all travellers in mind.

Darren Williams, Head of Sales, Eurostar says: “Rail is a great way to explore Europe, and Interrail Passes give those from Europe freedom to explore a huge range of destinations on a single trip. Our new partnership offers great value Eurostar fares to Pass holders, so it’s never been easier to use our stylish and comfortable cross-Channel services as part of a European adventure.”

Offering a seamless city-centre to city-centre journey, a generous baggage allowance with no weight restrictions, and free wi-fi and over 300 hours of on board entertainment on the new e320 trains, a Eurostar journey is a great addition to any European rail adventure.
