With the introduction of the new direct service from London to the South of France, and ticket sales for core destinations at an all-time high, Eurostar sales are going from strength to strength as travellers choose the train over the plane.
August bank holiday weekend sales
Eurostar is set for a cracking August bank holiday weekend as over 148,000 passengers are expected to travel with the high-speed rail operator.
Friday 28th August is the busiest day for departures from the UK, with over 38,000 people travelling on this day alone, looking to make the most of long weekend.
New South of France service reaches 100,000 ticket mark
Only four months after Eurostar’s new all year round direct service from London to the South of France embarked on its inaugural journey on 1 May, the high-speed rail operator has sold over 100,000 tickets to date.
Eurostar has seen a strong response for the route, which runs between London and Lyon, Avignon and Marseille, as passengers are drawn by the wide-ranging gastronomic and cultural attractions of the region. The new service, which offers UK travellers a seamless, leisurely journey from the heart of London to the Mediterranean, has revolutionised cross-channel travel offering a more convenient alternative to flying.
