BRUSSELS (Bruxelles) - LONDON | EUROSTAR train
Information for Interrail, Eurail travellers and persons with normal train ticket.
Several daily connections.
There is a special passholder fare for travellers owning a valid InterRail or Eurail ticket.
The passholder fare is non-refundable but is exchangeable once before the departure of either leg, subject to seat availability at the time of request.
SINGLE one way: EUR 65 / £57,50 for a single
RETURN: EUR 130 / £100
Where to buy:
1) You can not buy the ticket to the special InterRail fare. But sometimes you will find very cheap normal Eurostar tickets:
Or directly at the Eurostar website.
2) At a Eurostar Terminal
3) At the contact centre on 08705 186 186 (in the UK only) or +44 1233 617 575 (international calls).
The ticket to the special passholder fare can not be purchased online!!!
All tickets are sold subject to availability.
All tickets purchased over the phone are subject to a £5 booking fee.
As long as you are in possession of your pass on the day of travel, it is not necessary to validate it first.
💡 CHEAPER normal tickets (update by SiDUDe):
If you can book in advance you can usually find much cheaper advanced normal tickets, sometimes as low as half the pass holder price for a return, although you have to commit to specific trains on specific days.
💡 Avoid the EUROSTAR - use a ferry:

when STARTING from BE it is best to prebook via b-rail.be, then use europe trains-it also comes in English. There are fares from BRUssel or from ABs=any Belgian Station, usually about 35/39 and 40-45€/single on OFF PEAK or double for return-returns can only start in BE. You can choose between homeprint or get a code with to print the ticket at any main BE-station-you have to specify which one, can take any of the 3 main BRU-stations (in/near the INTernational ticket windows). If you pay with cr-card, you have to also use same card when withdrawing this way.
If you choose this way, your IR can start later (for passholder fare it must be valid, though you need not aklso to have a ''passday''). F.e. handy if you want to spend a few days in LOndon first before you start training in the UK
