The highlight of the huge new Eurostar Business Premier lounge in Paris is the cocktail bar, which is open every evening and serves up your choice of drink – on the house. We covered it in our review of the new lounge here.
Eurostar has now announced that it is opening a cocktail bar in London. You won’t have to wait long – the work is starting this month and they hope to be open by the end of August. It will be situated on the first floor of the existing lounge.
Remember that you get free access to Eurostar lounges, irrespective of your class of travel, with an American Express Platinum card. You can’t bring any guests although, of course, you can issue a free supplementary Platinum card to your partner.
How to earn Club Eurostar points via UK credit cards
As a reminder, Club Eurostar does not have its own 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 – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
Membership Rewards points convert at 15:1 into Club Eurostar points. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, so you earn the equivalent of 1 Club Eurostar point for every £15 you spend.
