    Mark Smith is a reliable source of rail news.

    He tweeted today that Eurostar is expected to rebrand its travel classes later this year.

    Now Eurostar has, for many years, considered itself more an airline than a train operator.

    (I refer here to the original Eurostar)

    So it’s interesting that one of the comments refers to the possibility that Eurostar will introduce ancillary fees as have the majority of airlines worldwide.

    With the popularity of solo seats in Standard Premier and limited luggage space onboard, to give just two examples, it would seem extra fees could be charged for those seeking a better seat or for travellers with lots of luggage (who might be booking standard seats).

    Airlines find that ancillary fees means they can boost revenue without changing the headline price.

    And as we all know Eurostar has become an expensive way to reach mainland Europe (unless booking months ahead) after the pandemic.
