The Eurostar service is a high speed train that links the United Kingdom with France and Belgium. The trains were first introduced in the mid nineties, and run on the UK's first high-speed rail line.
Eurostar operates a Frequent Traveller Programme. Customers who use the service regularly receive loyalty points for every journey booked. These points may be exchanged for free journeys on Eurostar, and cardholders may take advantage of Business Lounges, get commission-free currency, reduced check-in times and reduced hotel and car rental rates.
Standard and Standard Premier passengers should arrive at the station no later than 30mins before the train is scheduled to depart. Business Premier passengers can check-in up to 10mins before departure.
The check-in process involves an airport style passport check before passing through security scanners. Passengers then enter a waiting area before boarding the train around 10-15mins before departure.
