The high-speed passenger rail service, Eurostar, who links the UK with mainland Europe, is now opening sales for travel to the French Alps next ski season.
On 17th July 2019, tickets will be available for travel throughout the winter between 20th December 2019 and 11th April 2020.
The direct journey efficiently takes travellers from the centre of London to Alpine slopes. Travelling this way allows passengers to escape airport stress and bypass slow coach transfers on their way to mountain resorts.
From London St Pancras and Ashford International stations, passengers benefit are able to benefit from a stress-free journey as well as travel comfortably and in spacious surroundings.
Along with a generous baggage allowance of two suitcases plus hand luggage, and skis or snowboards with no 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 Courchevel, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel, and Les Arcs.
A variety of services allow passengers to pick the one which suits them best:
- Friday overnight: Make the most of every minute on the slopes by arriving on a Saturday morning while other holidaymakers are only just beginning their trip.
- Saturday daytime: Sit back and enjoy the journey, with a relaxing start to a holiday as the countryside passes by at high-speed.
- Saturday overnight: We’re running an extra night-time service to the Alps on Saturday 16th February, with a Sunday daytime return to the UK on 23rd February.
The 2019/20 seasonal ski services are to run weekly from 20 December 2019 until 11 April 2020, with fares from £80 each way.
