Booking tickets from london to brussels / brussels to paris in advance or not.

I am coming to London in December, My friend and i and leaving London to go to Paris via Brussels on December 16th, should be book our train tickets now, or should we buy them from the international train station when we arrive in London at the end of November?

What is going to be our cheaper option?

Are trains likely to sell out?

Hello Ian,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase tickets prior your travel on the website in order to avail confirmed seats. Tickets purchased locally at the train station are subject to availability hence it is advised to purchase in advance.

You can book and travel as follows:

- London to Brussels - Eurostar train.

- Brussels to Paris - Thalys train.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
