Eurostar and Thalys launch joint seat sale

8 Nov 2022 by Alex McWhirter

Before the pandemic Eurostar would hold numerous seat sales on which Business Traveller reported.

So I am pleased to tell you that today Eurostar (which has now merged with Thalys) has once again reintroduced its seat sale.

Fares are £29 one-way from London to Lille, Paris, Brussels, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. This fare is based on buying a round-trip ticket.


It’s different with Thalys. Its £29 fare can be booked one-way, but it is offered only as a Brussels-Amsterdam or Brussels-Cologne tag (Brussels-Cologne priced at Euros 29)  to the Eurostar (London-Brussels sector).

Most importantly note that bookings must be made by November 10.

Travel is allowed between November 28 and February 2, 2023 inclusive.

This is turning out to be a popular seat sale.  Indeed after it was launched this morning the website crashed although at time of writing it is again in operation

Eurostar-29 fares

On its home page boasts of 40,000 seats at £29 each way.   If you click the link you will see the booking pages showing which dates still offer the £29 fares.  These are limited because Eurostar has been running with high load factors in recent months.
