Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, is opening sales for tickets to the French Alps on 18th July 2018. The direct journey takes travellers from the centre of London to the side of the slopes, whilst they sit back and relax avoiding airport stress and time-consuming transfers to resorts.
From London St Pancras and Ashford International stations, passengers benefit from a stress-free journey, comfortable and spacious surroundings, as well as a generous baggage allowance of two suitcases plus hand luggage, and skis or snowboards at no extra cost.
Eurostar services direct to the French Alps stop at Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne and Bourg-St-Maurice, making it easy to access many of Europe’s top resorts including Courcheval, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel, and Les Arcs. A variety of services allow passengers to pick the one which suits them best:
- Friday overnight: Make the most of every minute on the slopes by arriving on a Saturday morning ready for a day on the snow.
- Saturday daytime: Sit back and enjoy the journey, with a relaxing start to a holiday as the countryside passes by.
- Saturday overnight: Providing more capacity during peak weeks. Combine it with a Friday overnight service to squeeze in an extra two days of quiet pistes.
The 2018/19 seasonal ski services will run weekly from 21 December 2018 until 6 April 2019, with fares from £75 each way.
This ski season, Eurostar has partnered with Maeva to offer travellers a curated range of chalets and rentals across the resorts of Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne, Bourg-St-Maurice, Val Thorens, Val d’Isère, Courchevel, Tignes, Méribel and Les Menuires. To save skiers from searching for the perfect place to stay, the selection of properties are all safety vetted, well-equipped and close to the pistes.
