Skiers and snowboarders seeking effortless travel to the slopes can book their winter escape with Eurostar, as tickets go on sale for high-speed travel from London St Pancras and Ashford International to the heart of the French Alps on 19th July 2017.
While other holidaymakers spend hours stuck in time consuming coach transfers to and from the airport, Eurostar travellers can relax with a hassle-free journey in spacious surroundings on board as they are whisked closer to the resorts. A generous baggage allowance leaves plenty of room for a winter wardrobe, with each passenger allowed two suitcases plus hand luggage, and skis or snowboards at no extra cost.
Eurostar services direct to the French Alps stop at Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne and Bourg-St-Maurice, making it easy to access many of Europe’s top resorts including Courcheval, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel, and Les Arcs. A choice of services each week allows passengers to pick a service that’s best for them:
· Friday overnight services provide another two days on the pistes, arriving on a Saturday morning to be welcomed by quieter slopes as other holidaymakers start their transfers back to the airports.
· Saturday daytime travel provides a stress-free journey from London, so travellers can sit back and relax in comfortable surroundings as they enjoy the start of their holiday watching the French countryside pass by.
· Saturday overnight trains return following a popular introduction last year, providing a third option and more capacity during peak half term and Easter school holidays. Combine it with a Friday night outbound journey to squeeze every snowdrop out of a ski holiday!
The 2017/18 seasonal ski services will run weekly from 22 December 2017 until 7 April 2018, with fares from £75 each way.
