App Allows Eurostar Bookings To Paris And Beyond
Wednesday, 24 August 2011
Travelling to Paris has never been so easy.
A new mobile phone app will allow passengers to book their Eurostar tickets, jump on board and drop their bags at their Paris apartment before they can say au revoir.
The free app enables customers to book their tickets via their iPhone or android device. A ticket featuring a special barcode will then be sent to their mobile which can be scanned at check-in at St Pancreas International in central London.
People can use the app to book trips to Gare du Nord station in Paris and onwards to Brussels and Lille and can amend these bookings at the touch of their smartphone screen.
The app will help business travellers and tourists alike who may need to switch services if their journey plans change.
The service could persuade people to spend a bit longer exploring the sights of the French capital - the iconic Eiffel Tower or the rich collections in the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay or Musee Rodin perhaps.
Travellers can also gather points towards Eurostar's Frequent Traveller and Plus Point loyalty programmes and check their balance through the new app.
The app also enables people to check for any disruptions to the high speed train service.
Nick Mercer, commercial director for Eurostar, said the new app was just the start of mobile developments for the high-speed passenger service.
He added: 'Our aim is to make using our services as easy and seamless as possible. So with the majority of our customers now owning a smartphone, we are really pleased that we are able to provide a new suite of services that make booking and checking in even easier for them.'
The Eurostar App can be downloaded free from the App Store on the iPhone or the Android Market on these devices.
