Maybe the days of BOGOF are gone for Eurostar, still this saves £28 and that makes it a deal.

if its £90 for 2, thats brilliant... or have i got it wrong

I understand it to be 2 tickets for £90 total. But I'll admit I'm confused now too!

Hot deal if I've understood it!

It's £90 for two - and the first password is 'chocolate'. ;-)

I think the password link statrs from 10th March onwards.
Thanks for updating the first password Newbold.
Passwords:
Sat 7th March - Chocolate
Sun 8th March - ?
Sat 14th March - ?
Sun 15th March - ?

Isn't that the first password i.e. "chocolate" is different for every one in the paper ? I'm not sure. Can someone pls clear this

Also, can we get other passwords here if they suppose to be same for everyone in every Times paper. I mean are they printing the same promotional password for everyone or it suppose to be different on the same day papers.

Thanks

It'll be the same. There are about 250,000 English words and the Times circulation is more than that, so they'd do well to print individual words!! ;-)

Defo £90 for two people. The cheapest price is normally £59 return per person, so £118 for two.

Since the password is a common word such as "Chocolate" my guess is that it is the same password printed for every paper.

If it was on an individual basis you'd probably get a random code type affair e.g. "JXY343DFB" or somethng like that so it could be unique?

I like the commercial advertising this, the woman has an attractive set. Was the commercial supposed to be funny though? I mean she says thank you in French and he responds immediately (and uncharacteristically friendly/surprised) that she is English

Is this a good deal compared to budget airlines for 2 ppl?

Any idea as to the max stay? ie could I use this for a weeks holiday?

Is this a good deal compared to budget airlines for 2 ppl?



Yes, for several reasons:

1. Less harmful to the environment
2. Gets you right into the centre of Paris so no transfers and ridiculous security measures needed
3. It's probably quite a bit cheaper, especially as a taxi from the Ryanair "Paris" airport would cost around €150 each way...

Is this a good deal compared to budget airlines for 2 ppl?



Definitely a good deal if you're not too far from StPancras . Most airlines requires you to e at the airport at least two hours before the flight, you can check in on the ES quiet quickly in the last hour. Also you don't have to deal with all the luggage issues that airlines normally involves.
Plus you'll be in the city when you arrive, not in a far far away airport terminal...

Price wise a craking deal! Hope the passwords are working for everybody!

is the eurostar nice to ride on? or is it just like a normal national rail train?

also can you get on it any further west than london? I live in wales so looks like it will have to be catch a train to get on it.. alot of travelling!

It is a really good deal, especially that I was planning to go to Paris at the end of April

It's much nicer than flying and it's a fast smooth ride. The seats are in pairs or fours (with table) and are comfortable with plenty of room. And you can walk down to the bar and enjoy a few drinks at 180 MPH. In fact we call it the Eurobar. Very civilised way to travel and takes you into the middle of town unlike flying.

Ebbslfleet on the M2 is the preferred Kent station now, although it is small! Ashford run a limited service.

You can get free travel from most train companies down to St Pancreas or Ebbsfleet with a Eurostar ticket. A Eurostar ticket is also valid for Belgian Rail services, so you can carry on to Ghent, Bruges or even Antwerp!!!!!

I hadn't heard about the free travel this side of the water. Surely they are unlikely to do that as it would be cheaper than getting a normal train in this country?

The link is a bit unclear - you probably get a discount from provincial stations if you book direct, not sure whether this deal would apply though

Nice find! Heat and Rep!

As asked before, can you use this for longer than a day, i.e. go one day come back another ?

Anyone know if you could first-class upgrade with these tickets, i don't see why not ?

You will have to pay extra for travel to St Pancras from stations in the UK.
If you purchase tickets from Eurostar for stations in Belgium then the Belgium destination is usually at no extra cost.
None this may apply to the Times offer which I haven't read.
There is a wonderful site for train travel, seat61.com which gives lots of very good advice.

Seems like a great deal. Those of you who are going to be buying the paper anyway, keep us updated with the daily passwords. Nice one.

Too true, if you are nearer London then it is probably quicker as well. Just seen the "free travel" from around UK, am very interested in that.

Heat + rep added cheers to all who have updated with additional info :thumbsup:

Try the National Express East Coast website - it's showing as little as £16 for two single tickets for the journey you mention.

Out 14.57 and arrives 16.13 - £16 for two. Loads of other options and prices too.

hmm yeah just had a look at them but looking to leave pretty early and get into london st pancras about 10 i would say

Great deal, been looking for an alternative to Ryanair with their crazy fees lately, this would save alot! Have some heat and rep

I got 2x easyjet flights for £96 Edinburgh to Paris Charles de Gaulle... much cheaper that train from scotland!!

cheers will follow this thread for passwords

Very good deal
