Discounted eurostar tickets

Any information on discount.london.com would be appreciated. They seem to have less expensive rates on Eurostar but I want to make sure they're legitimate before I charge.

Yes, about $100 cheaper, so I'm thinking it might be too good to be true.

Are you getting like for like tickets - there is a differential between business and leisure fares?

Hi Z,

I tried www.discountlondon.com and got only a single page - no offers.

The cheapest Eurostar tickets are the one-day RT fares, about $90 2cl.

And what's on discount-london.com looks no different from what's on similar, notoriously utterly legit, sites like lastminute.com.

If there's a real difference between Eurostar's best rate and discount-london's, are you absolutely sure you're getting a quote from discount-london for EXACTLY the same date and time as you're pumping into Eurostar?

AHA!

It's www.discountlondon.co.uk

They are offering a 70GBP pkg on the 05:34 out of London, with lunch in Paris.

You can buy your tickets for 60GBP.
You can easily get lunch in Paris for 10GBP (15E).

You don't have to take the 05:34 train.
