Eurostar, the high-speed rail service that links the
UK, France and Belgium, is now offering its passengers the opportunity
to buy public transport tickets for all its core destinations directly
on board the trains.
RATP tube tickets (Réseau autonome des
transports parisiens- Paris public transport system) and STIB
tickets (Société des Transports Intercommunaux de Bruxelles –
Brussels public transport system) are now available for sale on
Eurostar. The move follows the recent introduction of Visitor
Oyster cards for use in London.
This convenient system allows Eurostar travellers to save
time, avoiding the lengthy queues that might be experienced upon
arrival on the continent to buy tube tickets. It also facilitates
quicker connections onto a domestic train when a change of station
is required. Tickets can either be bought in euros or pounds at
Simon Montague, Eurostar’s Director of
Communications, said, “Selling Paris and Brussels tube and bus
tickets and London’s Visitor Oyster cards on board really helps
travellers to speed up the journey to their final destinations.
Public transport is the best value option that allows them to save
money for site-seeing and shopping, and helps travellers to reduce
the environmental impact of their onward travel.”
