Tickets went on sale yesterday, for the new Eurostar service from London St Pancras to Geneva, via Lille. This route to the Alps avoids Paris, and speeds up the journey time to 6hr 18mins. From Geneva, there are frequent airport transfers to your resort in the Alps; Chamonix, Zermatt, Verbier or Martigny.
Not only is this service far more environmentally friendly than flying, but it’s financially a better deal too, with single tickets from just £62. The service runs on Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, so is a genuinely viable alternative to flying. Full details are available on the Eurostar website; click here.
With a return ticket costing from £124, this Eurostar service makes the Alps quicker and cheaper to access than the Scottish Highlands for those living in London! We’ve already got winter Alpine clients who are planning on booking their travel by train.
