Eurostar, the high-speed rail link between the UK and mainland Europe, has confirmed that its London-Amsterdam service will operate fully direct both to and from the Netherlands from the 26th October.
Tickets for the direct return journey went on sale from 1st September from £40 each way, with a journey time of just over four hours (4h 9m) from Amsterdam and three and a half hours (3h 29m) from Rotterdam to London.
In light of the continuing uncertainty and recently introduced quarantine measures, Eurostar is offering passengers more flexibility with all fares now exchangeable with no fee up to 14 days before departure. * These flexible fares, which apply to all bookings made from 1st July until 31st December, are valid for any dates of travel available at the time of purchase. The increased flexibility comes in addition to options for those with existing bookings who may want to change their travel plans.
Eurostar has introduced new hygiene measures, onboard and in stations, to provide passengers with a safe experience:
A new seat map ensures travellers are seated respecting social distancing guidelines.
Trains are deep cleaned before every journey, and cleaning teams are on board to regularly disinfect high contact areas.
All travellers must wear a mask on board and in stations, in line with government regulations.
