Eurostar launches direct London-Amsterdam


High-speed rail link transformed between London and Amsterdam with services now direct both to and from the Netherlands

Eurostar, the high-speed rail link between the UK and mainland Europe, has just announced that from 30th April, its London-Amsterdam service will operate fully direct both to and from the Netherlands. Tickets for the direct return journey will be on sale from 11th February 2020.

 

 

Since 2018, Eurostar has provided a seamless journey from London to Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The new connection – direct both ways – will offer hassle-free travel between these iconic European cities and a compelling reason for travellers to switch from plane to train.

 

With competitive fares from just £35 each way, tickets are available from 11th February, for travel from Amsterdam starting on 30th April 2020 and from Rotterdam on 18th May 2020. 

 

Initially there will be three services a day from the UK to the Netherlands. The direct inbound journey from Amsterdam to London will start with two services, with the aim of increasing to a third, and then a fourth. 

 

Eurostar offers the most sustainable choice for short-haul European travel, with a journey between London and Amsterdam resulting in 80%1 less carbon per passenger than the equivalent flight. By choosing Eurostar, customers are also actively supporting the reforestation of woodland in Europe with a tree planted for every service that it operates across its routes.

 

Mike Cooper, Chief Executive, Eurostar, said: “Our services from the UK to the Netherlands have proved very popular with over half a million travellers since launch. Our fully direct service marks an exciting advance for high-speed rail and provides consumers with a comfortable, environmentally friendly alternative to the airlines on one of Europe’s busiest leisure and business routes.”
