Help! Can't book Eurostar online

Hi all

I've been trying for an hour to make an online booking London-Paris. It's exactly 120 days in advance. I was so determined to get in early and get a good price. But I CAN'T! It won't progress me further than 'Travel Extras'. When I click no thanks, I get bumped back to selecting a date.

What am I doing wrong? I can see seats disappearing before my eyes, prices going up...

It's for 18 September, 3 people.

Anyone have a clue about this??

Thank you.

Never mind. I have the tickets printed.

Sorry for false alarm. Pesky gremlins again.

When all else fails, try a different browser (Firefox or Chrome or what have you.) Glad you worked it out!

Looks like you are from Australia? I presume the Eurostar computes the days using the UK or the Continental time. The Eurostar reservation calendar is only open until Sept 17 right now.

Thanks for advice, amy_torres_sd: may need it when it comes to booking TGV Paris-Switz in a month!

Yes, am from Oz, so even though it was allowing me to select the date, maybe the whole time difference came into play somewhere.

Anyhoo, very happy to have tickets at 39/38/38 GBP! Exciting.
