Eurostar has announced that it is launching a 3rd weekday Rotterdam and Amsterdam service on 11th June.

It will depart St Pancras at 11.04, arriving in Amsterdam at 16.11.  The early morning service will leave earlier, at 07.16, arriving 12.11, potentially making life easier for business travellers.  The 3rd train leaves at 17.16, arriving 22.11.

How to get Club Eurostar points and lounge access from UK credit cards (November 2022)

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

Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:

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.
