5 reasons to travel by Eurostar

Forget the two hour wait and arrive in style. At Arena Travel we’re all about efficiency and we want your journey to be just as memorable as the destination, and so, this is why many of our rail holidays – and some of our River Cruises – begin and end with the Eurostar.

Boarding the train at London St Pancras you can be in either Brussels or Paris in just over two hours and thus on your way to enjoying your dream holiday. So, sit back, relax and enjoy reading this blog, which explains all of the reasons you should pick Eurostar for your next trip overseas.

As already mentioned the Eurostar is quick, meaning you can be in the capital of Belgium or France in just two hours after leaving the UK. What’s more, there’s no waiting around for hours before you can board, as long as you’re there thirty minutes before (although we would recommend giving it an hour) you can relax knowing that your seat is secured and you’ll soon be making your way through the English Channel, with no baggage reclaim to worry about at the other side.

It’s cheaper

Don’t waste your time scrolling through flight comparison sites trying to find the cheapest tickets, instead just travel by Eurostar. And, you can forget about having to pay all those pesky extra fees as your luggage is included, you don’t have to pay extra for your seat and you can even bring your own food and drinks!

It gets you where you want to be
