A new direct connection between Amsterdam and London will launch in October, Eurostar has announced.
For the first time, passengers will be able to travel directly between London and Amsterdam, without having to change trains, in both directions.
Tickets for the direct service between London and the Netherlands go on sale on 1 September, costing from £40 each way, with services running from 26 October. Tickets are available up to six months in advance.
The journey takes 4h 9m between Amsterdam and London, and 3h 29m between Rotterdam and London.
With so much uncertainty surrounding travel at the moment, Eurostar has introduced new flexibility into its fares. All tickets booked between 1 July and 31 December are exchangeable with no fee up to 14 days before your departure — meaning if your health situation or quarantine rules change, you can switch to another available service. If you wish to change your journey under 14 days before departure, the usual fees still apply.
Eurostar has also introduced additional safety measures, including deep cleaning trains before every journey, and a new seat map to ensure passengers are seated an adequate distance apart.
