Eurostar reduces Paris services

In normal times Eurostar operates a multitude of services daily to France, Belgium and Holland.

But currently services have been reduced to a mere five a day covering just Paris and Brussels.

A spokesperson for Eurostar told Business Traveller that today (Friday March 20) will see just three services in each direction to Paris, two to Brussels and none at all to Amsterdam/Disneyland Paris or the ski resorts.

“For Amsterdam travellers will have to change at Brussels (taking Thalys or local trains onwards to The Netherands).”

However it’s a rapidly changing situation which can vary day by day.

As we noted yesterday Eurostar no longer provides any catering on its trains in line with government instructions.

There can be a large price gap between the regular standard economy and Standard and Business Premier.

Previously Eurostar says refunds had been offered in compensation for lack of catering.

This would be in the form of e-vouchers to the value of 15 per cent for Business Premier and 10 per cent for Standard Premier.

The same situation ought to apply now.
