The Eurostar… what a great invention! Connecting London and Paris via railroad is a great and ingenuous idea, because it allows to travel from the heart of a city to another in less than 3 hours. However, this experience has a price, and it’s often very expensive!
But wait… did you know you could get exceptional deals? Eurostar has implemented “Eurostar Snap”, a service which allows to book cheap, last-minute tickets: snap.eurostar.com/uk-en
Here are the simple instructions, as seen on their website:
1. Choose your destination and add your fellow travellers
2. Pick a date and whether you’d like to travel in the morning or afternoon
3. Et voilà – the deal is yours.
However, you must be 16+, and you can book as far as 2 weeks from the day you’re checking out the site. But most importantly, you must be flexible to enjoy these deals: you cannot choose the exact schedule of your train, since you only have two options: morning and afternoon.
Nevertheless, “Eurostar Snap” is still a great option if you ever dreamed of visiting Paris or London, even on a whim.
During your trip, don’t forget to bring your Globcoin multicurrency Mastercard®, which will allow you to easily switch between Euro and GBP for each of your transactions!
