Eurostar is running another public sale from tomorrow (20th) through to December 2nd.
However, if you use this link, you have access to the sale before the general advertising starts tomorrow.
Here are the terms and conditions:
You will pay £54 return to Paris, Lille, Disneyland Paris, Brussels or indeed any station in Belgium, in Economy.
You must travel from 6 January to 12 February, excluding 31 January to 2 February.
2-4 people must travel together
There are 5,000 pairs of tickets available at these prices, and some peak services are not available. That said, if you book today you will have substantially greater choice compared to what is available when the advertising for the sale begins tomorrow.
At the time of writing (6pm Monday) I could find, for example, Paris outbound on Friday 24 January (all trains before 2.30pm) for £27 per person outbound. The latest £27 each-way ticket on Sunday 26 January was 12.31, but for an extra £17 each you could return until 16.13.
Remember that if you have an American Express Platinum card you can use Eurostar lounges just by flashing the card. However, you cannot bring in a guest, so your companion would need to be your supplementary Platinum cardholder.
How to earn Club Eurostar points from UK credit cards (June 2021)
Club Eurostar does not have a UK credit card. However, you can earn Club Eurostar points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 1,333 Club Eurostar points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 2,000 Club Eurostar points. Card benefits include Eurostar lounge access.
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 333 Club Eurostar points. This card is FREE for life.
Membership Rewards points convert at 15:1 into Club Eurostar points which is an attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, so you will get the equivalent of 1 Club Eurostar point for every £15 you spend.
American Express Platinum comes with a great Eurostar benefit – Eurostar lounge access!
You can enter any Eurostar lounge, irrespective of your ticket type, simply by showing The Platinum Card at the desk. No guests are allowed but you can get entry for your partner by issuing them with a free supplementary Amex Platinum card on your account.
