Eursostar question

Does they release less expensive seats as the dates get closer? Right now looking to travel on a weekend in June. My times are reading expensive, should I wait and book closer in, or book now, and risk fares going up?

Assuming you are talking about the Eurostar that goes under the English Channel then book now as the price NEVER gets cheaper the nearer the departure date you get

Book the eurostar as soon as you can!! Try lastminute.com for some cheap eurostar fares.

Strange as it may seem, sometimes return (roundtrip) fares are cheaper than single (one-way) fares. Do a dummy booking at www.eurostar.com using an arbitrary return date and see if that's true for you. If it is, book the return and throw away the unused portion.

Hi L,

I went to your link for last minute deals. Their best offer was 119GBP ($240) for Friday out and Sunday return.

www.eurostar.com had the same dates for 88E ($120).
