I’m confused - you find the cheap fares on the Eurostar website then book through Trainline? Why not book directly with Eurostar?
Just a heads up regarding Eurostar as I work in a travel agency and we get an average of at least 20 eurostar train cancellations every week since the French strike has started.The strike is still on so my suggestion is don't book train travelling this month as there's still a high risk of cancellation. Hopefully if they find an agreement everything should be back to normal in February.

We go via Ebbsfleet (to Disneyland).

We stay in one of the Gravesend Premier Inns the night before as we're from the Midlands.

I've listed the rates in case it helps anyone!

Thank you OP. We'd planned a trip to Paris and I was going to book before Xmas but didn't have time. Good thing I waited as these offer dates work perfectly with our holiday requirements. This has to be the first time I've ever managed to get a deal like this on the dates I want!

The ones with booking direct with Eurostar were posted here hotukdeals.com/dea…634 a while back, hope that helps someone.
Great deal. Thanks OP
Some so so prices on Cardiff to Edinburgh too @£102 return. I suppose it is nearly twice the distance as those mentioned above.

It goes to DLP. Went by Eurostar last year and the station is right next to the entrance. Much easier than driving or flying.

We’re going in June for the first time. It looks way more expensive to go straight to dlp on the Eurostar than just Paris and then a tube train from Paris? Or is that my misunderstanding?

Also, it seems like they do these sales often - are we better off waiting to see if our dates come up?
They usually release dates 6 months ahead and cheap, then there's a fight over few tickets. Then they sky rocket. IIRC
Not finding anything close to these prices yet..

It may well be more expensive going direct to DLP compared to Gard Du Nord, not sure of the difference. Personally I would look at what the difference is and see whether based on convenience if it is worth paying the difference. Also factor in who you are going with. If you are going with small children and will have several bags of luggage you will soon be bemoaning the extra time and effort of going on the tube (as you would if you flew). If it’s just grown ups or grown ups and teenagers then you may want to consider the saving.

Also worth thinking about which hotel you are staying at. If your at one of the central hotels then they are walking distance from the station, if you are going to one of the outer hotels then you will need to get a shuttle bus to them.

Regardless how you get there I’m sure you’ll have a great time as it is a great place for both the kids and adults, just be prepared to have a much lighter wallet at the end of the holiday.
So under half the price London to Paris then london to Newcastle?
What does that say about our train service???
Paid £110 each way for Paris a couple of months ago, so can't really complain at this price.
My baby who would be 10months would be free right
Thanks for posting; we've added this to the Highlights pages

It's definitely more expensive going to DLP. The direct trains can be very very expensive as the desirable slots are pre-booked by both savvy bargain hunters in advance and travel agents.

The indirect trains through Lille Europe are more acceptable on price, but its less convinient in terms of moving your luggage between trains. But personally, I think being able to drop your stuff off at DLP station counts for a lot.

Be careful regarding strikes though as the last leg is run by SCNF who strike a lot.
Just a heads up regarding Eurostar as I work in a travel agency and we get an average of at least 20 eurostar train cancellations every week since the French strike has started.The strike is still on so my suggestion is don't book train travelling this month as there's still a high risk of cancellation. Hopefully if they find an agreement everything should be back to normal in February.

The strikes are with Eurostar (i.e Eurostar is French company?) or if im heading to Amsterdam there's no problem to book?
How are the trains, anyone took this company before?

It's something like an extra £200 for the eurostar straight to DLP but only 9 euros each from paris on the commuter train, IIRC. And it's only me and my wife so it won't be the much extra fuss. We are staying at Sequoia lodge so also within walking distance!

Thanks for the help. We are glad we got a meal plan for free in our deal otherwise it would've been way way worse for money!

We will have a look - thanks. Our plan is to go to Gard-du-Nord and get the commuter train out of there to DLP after a spot of lunch.

Unfortunately it will affect any train as Eurostar is owned by a French company
Anything cheap to Amsterdam

£35 to amsterdam but the return is more expensive. Ive found that flying with LEVEL from Luton and return is £60.
To get to Bruges, does anyone know if I can use the same London to Brussels eurostar ticket or do I have to buy another ticket from Brussels to Bruges?
dang , this next weekend is $$$$$
