Eurostar have launched SNAP – a new digital hub offering best value tickets for passengers with travel time flexibility.
Eurostar, the high-speed rail service between the UK and mainland Europe, has announced the launch of a new ticketing platform designed to provide travellers, who have flexibility on their travel time, with best value fares.
Eurostar ‘SNAP’ passengers informed of departure time 48 hours before travel
By logging on to the new online service through Facebook, passengers select their travel date and destination specifying a morning or afternoon departure. Then 48 hours before travel, Eurostar will confirm the exact time of the train.
According to the operator, Snap is designed to provide quick and simple access to the lowest fares, offering up to the minute availability from any mobile device, tablet or desktop. Bookings must be at least 7 days before departure.
Nick Mercer, Commercial Director, Eurostar, says: “Our research has shown that there is a strong appetite for spontaneous travel at great prices. With state-of-the-art trains boasting 20% more capacity, as well as wifi and onboard entertainment, travellers with a flexible schedule can look forward to a spur of the moment trip at the lowest fare.”
