  • "The Eurostar is Awesome"    
    This is our second trip on the Eurostar and we enjoyed it both times. Fast, comfortable and very nice service.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "*****"    
    Beautiful experience. Thanks.  
  • "Custom"    
    Didn't know there was custom but thankfully it went fast. The line was long for it and I thought I was gonna miss the train due to the customs.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "A good trip"    
    I was travelling with my two girls and my cousin family. The train was comfortable and it was unremarkable. We arrived safely and on time.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Poor and inadequate service "    
    We did not travel due to the illness of one of our party. We were given conflicting advice and no support from your company. Euro rail said it was clearly a matter for your company to make arrangements about exchange or credits. A simple phone call would have been an appropriate response to my emails. I will not be using Rail Europe again.  
  • "A nice journey from Paris"    
    We traveled as a family and the journey was nice and comfortable. Everything was ok.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "eurostart london paris"    
    very comfortable immigration process was smooth only would have preferred to see the seating arrangement on the site. we did not get the seats together as a group if we could have seen the seats while booking then it would have been better    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Trip from Paris to london"    
    The journey was relaxed and easy - a lot less stress than travelling by plane! The seats are comfortable plus plenty of space for luggage. Definitely the best way to cross the channel!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "unexpected experience"    
    my comments relate to my trip back from London. unlike our trip to London (modern and comfortable train) our way back to Paris was extremely disappointing.the train was old,the seats were of tired velvet which seemed dusty (mine was a little torn). there was no wi-fi and nowhere to charge my phone. our seats were changed and we had no view at all (we had no window at all). it was very crowded and not comfortable.We didn't know eurostars could be other than modern and enjoyable.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "NZ customer"    
    ease of travel and booking system excellent.Communication via email good and all trains I travelled on were on time    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Solo Trip"    
    The trip was extremely pleasant. I was travelling alone for the first time and reached the station 2hrs early. Even though my train was at 10:45am they proactively put me in the 8:30am train as I was early. This was a really kind gesture and my whole journey was extremely convenient with no hassles. I would definitely travel again with RailEurope    Value for money  Convenience
