London-Paris Eurostar tickets for €39 in flash sale

Tickets are available for travel in June and July but some dates are already sold out

Discount tickets are also available between London and Lille
Published Last updated

A flash sale of Eurostar train tickets has been launched with prices dropping to €39 one-way between London and Paris. 

The sale will end tonight (May 23) evening and is operating on a first-come first-served basis. 

It covers standard class tickets between June 4 and July 18, although on a handful of dates no discount tickets are available. 

At the time of writing, prices for tickets on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays within the time period had returned to normal levels, with all discounted tickets already being used up.

Prices on these dates are between €84 and €134. 

Generally, booking Eurostar tickets for trains two months in advance can cost triple figures for each leg of the journey, when there is no flash sale running.

Alongside trains between London and Paris, tickets between the UK capital and Lille are also available for €39. Discount tickets to Brussels are also part of the deal. 

The cut-price tickets can be purchased on both the Eurostar and SNCF websites.

As a reminder, those travelling between the UK and France on Eurostar trains need their passport. 

Incoming digital border control systems set to come into force in both the EU and UK later this year may affect travel via Eurostar trains, with some people fearful of longer queues at both St Pancras and Gare du Nord stations.
