Anika was in Paris on Friday for a private view of the brand new Eurostar lounge at Gare du Nord.
It seems that it could, potentially, be the smartest railway lounge in the world. It opens to the public today (Saturday).
We will have a full review on Monday. In the meantime, here is a 77 second video tour we made:
And here is Anika with Raymond Blanc, who has overseen the creation of a signature gin for the new lounge!
More on Monday.
(PS. If you are a regular Eurostar passenger to Paris, remember that American Express Platinum gets you into the Eurostar lounges in London, Paris and Brussels. You can’t bring a guest but, of course, you can issue your partner a free supplementary Amex Platinum of their own.)
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 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 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 – 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.
