train travel cost?

I am shocked at the difference in price of the Eurostar from Paris to LOndon within the last 3 years. Is anyone else as stunned as I or has it always been over $ 275.00 dollars per person and I just don't remember?

Hi g,

You can go for as little as $90 on a one-day RT 2cl ticket.

see www.raileurope.com and www.eurostar.com

They are priced like airline tickets. If you book a return ticket weeks in advance and can be flexible about departure times, there are reasonable fares; if you turn up at the station and ask for a ticket on the next train, you'll pay a fortune.

Hi goldee,

Buy your round trip ticket. Go to London. Keep the ticket as a souvenir.

Your question isn't as bad as the person who wanted to use only the return part of an airline ticket.
