  • "Easy trip to London"    
    As a single female traveller it would have been nice to have someone help with my luggage in the First Class carriage as I was left to struggle with my own suitcase. Trip was uneventful with good announcement made throughout, maybe a little more space for suitcases on the train as space was limited.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great way to travel"    
    The Eurostar is a really great way to get from Paris to London. Seats are comfortable and the service is good. The only down side is there isn't always enough room for suitcases.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "London to Paris "    
    Travelling directly from Heathrow to Paddington to St Pancras was easy. We arrived early and were allowed to change to an earlier train, which was great as we had already been travelling for 30 hours. Very comfortable, enjoyable trip.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Europe 2016"    
    Travelled 2nd class , was very comfortable , we have no regrets or complaints    Value for money  Convenience
  • "No seat allocation"    
    Booking directly with rail companies allows the traveller to select seats. RailEurope do not provide this option and it's not possible to request seat allocation from the rail company after they have been booked by RailEurope. My partner suffers from motion sickness so this is an important consideration if we want to enjoy our holiday. Fortunately we were facing forwards, but we won't be taking this risk by booking with RailEurope in the future.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Mr. Arthur"    
    My first trip on a fast train and I enjoyed the experience. The staff in the meal car were courteous in communication. The seats are comfortable and booking on line gives value for money.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "convenient"    
    most convenient and efficient way to travel to Paris. The customer service was very good and ease of boarding was also good    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Into the Heart of Paris"    
    We love this way of travelling into the heart of Paris from the heart of London. None of the hassles involved with getting to and from airports with the long checkin times, security queues and luggage issues. Travel on time (to the minute), in comfort (plenty of legroom and space to move around) and on arrival in Paris, simply grab your bags and go!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "train trip"    
    the trip was on time, well organised and relaxing    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Last leg of or trip"    
    The train travel was just a perfect end to our holiday we have now gone both ways from London.Cant thank Rail Europe team enough. Thanks guys    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Excellent assistance"    
    I use a walking stick and had not realised that to secure assistance, I needed to pre-book. However, the lady at the welcome desk made my departure much easier by changing my seat to a carriage which did not require me to walk so far. Also, staff assisted me with my case both on embarking and disembarking. Excellent service and now know that I can pre-bbok assistance on future trips.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train was old"    
    Overall trip was good. Ran a few minutes over time so put pressure on short connection time in Paris as we needed to transfer to Montparnasse. Train is old and lacking modern features like USB ports, wifi. Not sure if this was reflected in price or not.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Excellent"    
    We experienced our journey from London to Paris return and were very happy with the comfort and value for money. Colleen Taylor Australia  
  • "First time on the Euro Star."    
    It was our first trip on the Euro Star and were pleasantly impressed. We were placed on board in an orderly manner considering there were a few people travelling that day. The ride was comfortable and quick. Got to London in just over 2 hours. Would highly recommend this type of travel and would certainly do it again.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fast and smooth"    
    This was our first experience on the fast train. The seats were comfy, meals and drinks fine and staff were very friendly. The train ride was so smooth even though we were going really fast. What a great way to travel from London to Paris.    Value for money  Convenience
