EUROSTAR, the high-speed rail service connecting the UK and mainland Europe, has today announced the launch of an innovative new service – Eurostar Snap – where passengers with flexibility on their travel time can access the best available Eurostar fares.

By logging on to the new online service through Facebook, passengers select their travel date and destination specifying a morning or afternoon departure.

Then 48 hours before travel, Eurostar will confirm the exact time of the train.

Snap is designed to provide quick and simple access to the lowest Eurostar fares, offering up to the minute availability from any mobile device, tablet or desktop.

Bookings must be at least 7 days before departure and tickets to Paris and Brussels are now on sale from £25 one-way.

Nick Mercer, Commercial Director, Eurostar, says: “Our research has shown that there is a strong appetite for spontaneous travel at great prices. With state-of-the-art trains, travellers with a flexible schedule can look forward to a spur of the moment trip at the lowest fare.”

With free travel for children under four, a generous two-bag luggage allowance plus hand luggage and over 300 hours of onboard entertainment and wifi free of charge, Eurostar is the ideal way to travel to Europe.
