Booking Eurostar tickets from Canada for June

Can I book online from Canada for Eurostar tickets Paris to London. Do you get an e-ticket to print at home or do you pick up your ticket in Paris? many thanks for any help.

You collect your ticket at the station in Paris.

EEk so late to book now, prices will not be great. Book 90 days out for best deals.

You do get an email confirmation, which you print out, and take to station to pick up tickets .

Your credit card( the one you booked the ticket with) will not scan through the ticket dispensing machines, as our Canadain cards are not micro chipped, no panic,just get in line and get ticket from the manned kiosks.
Have fun.

Hi R,

You should show up about 1:15 hour ahead of time to get your tickets and go through security.

Thank's so much for all the help. you are right the prices are high. I'm thankful for the tip about not trying to scan our cards saves us some angst..

I don't know if it will work for you but I received the Eurostar newsletter yesterday mentioning 66€ return.
Use HALLU66 code

Good luck!

Really? That much time? Eurostar website says to check in 30 minutes ahead. I'm not challenging you, just wanting to know why you recommend so early... I'm getting ready to book Brugge-London via Lille, and had given myself 40 minutes at Lille to change and check in. If there's a good chance I'll miss the eurostar to London, I'll come up with another option, though. I'm assuming I'll be picking up the ticket at the station... booking from US, trip on May 28...

Thanks!
