Holidaymakers are being urged to avoid disappointment, by snapping up their summer Eurostar tickets early this year. The train service has announced that it will be selling sale tickets for the summer 2012 service to Provence, France, earlier than ever before – and tickets are available to buy now.
The sale tickets for the months of July through to September 2012 have been available to buy since the 20th of December 2011. Eurostar claim that the early availability is to cope with massive demand for the service.
Travellers who wish to see the picturesque region of France close-up and personal are advised to opt for the Eurostar service – which travels non-stop through the magnificent French countryside, directly to Avignon in the heart of Provence.
The journey time of the Provence service is less than six hours, with trains running from both St Pancras International in London, and Ashford International in Kent.
Nick Mercer, commercial director for Eurostar commented: "Our direct Avignon summer services grow in popularity each year, as people across the country see how easy and enjoyable it is to travel across Europe by high-speed rail.”
“By opening sales to Avignon earlier than usual we are giving customers even more flexibility when planning their summer trip to Provence. Journeys with Eurostar avoid the summer scramble at the airports and increasingly, passengers see their journey as part of the holiday itself."
