Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Eurostar now bookable six months in advance

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Eurostar has opened up its reservation system a little further in advance.  Effective this week, you can now book six months ahead rather than just four months.

Eurostar book now

As few people realise this yet, you might find a few bargains, even at peak times, if you look 5- 6 months forward ….

For some reason, Eurostar is promoting this as a ‘temporary’ event which ends on March 2nd.  Realistically, though, I would expect them to stick with the six month window as long as customers are happy to book that far ahead.

How to earn Club Eurostar points from UK credit cards (November 2020)

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 cardsThese are:

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 – 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.

    I find booking the day seats get released is the only way to bag a £69 return at a decent time – so worth noting this new earlier date.

    Booked a few days ago for May bank holiday weekend at £69 return. Though we’re only going as far as Calais so that fare seems a bit steep for a 1 hour train journey, given how far ahead we’re booking …
