Eurail, which simplifies rail travel throughout 28 European countries with its series of flexible rail Passes, is adding Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, to its membership group from this year onwards.

With the new partnership, Eurail Pass holders travelling on Eurostar will enjoy new special fares and greater availability of seat reservations, providing even more value for money than ever before.

Eurail Global and applicable Select and One Country Pass holders looking to discover multiple destinations as they hop on and off Europe's rail network can secure Eurostar Pass holder fares from €30 one way in Standard class or €38 in Standard Premier with their Eurail Pass, making it easier to incorporate a high-speed journey under the Channel into their unique rail journey.

The fares will be available between London, Ebbsfleet and Ashford International and Paris, Brussels, Lille, Calais and Disneyland Paris.

For close to 60 years, Eurail Passes have been providing international visitors the ability to go from local stations to far-flung destinations, stopping wherever they like along the way to explore the cultures, cuisine and characters of Europe.

With Eurail Passes available from three days to three months in duration, they offer great savings for shorter breaks as well as longer escapes, and have a number of bespoke offers for youth, small groups and families, designed with all travellers in mind.

Offering a seamless city-centre to city-centre journey, a generous baggage allowance with no weight restrictions, free wi-fi and over 300 hours of on board entertainment on the new e320 trains, a Eurostar journey is a great addition to any European rail adventure.
