Eurostar has announced exciting news that they will be opening a new route from London to Amsterdam. Currently airlines dominate this route as it is the easiest and fastest way to get to Amsterdam. You can already book your Eurostar journey to Amsterdam from London with Omio.
This will all change, now that Eurostar will open a new route to the Netherlands; allowing passengers from London to take the ‘tunnel under the sea’ directly to the Dutch capital. Passengers will get to Amsterdam faster as they no longer need to change stations at Brussels, as the current route dictates.
The route is set to go live on 4th April 2018. The cheapest tickets will cost around 40€ one-way, making it very affordable for the 4 million airline passengers who take this route each year. As a result, Eurostar will serve a popular route, offering alternative, innovative, and greener solutions to travel. Tickets can already be booked in advance on Omio for this route.
If you choose to take the Eurostar, your carbon footprint will be much smaller. Traveling by train is generally a greener option, with the train company confirming that taking the journey via train emits 80% less carbon than by air.
