Eurostar introduces connections to Switzerland

  28.05.2009    

Eurostar has now introduced connecting fares to 18 key Swiss stations. Tickets to Switzerland, offered in conjunction with the high-speed train operator Lyria, are available from just under £100 return.
Travelling by rail to Switzerland is a much greener and seamless alternative than flying. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and relax while speeding through the French and Swiss countryside: from mountains to meadows, from cities to quaint villages, the view from the train window is sheer entertainment!
The fastest journey times from London’s St Pancras International to the main Swiss cities are:
Geneva Lausanne Zurich Basel Bern
Fastest journey time 06h28 06h50 07h28 06h19 07h40
Connection Gare de Lyon Gare de Lyon Gare de l’Est Gare de l’Est Gare de l’Est
Return fares from Under £100 Under £110 Under £130 Under £100 Under £110
For travellers from Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International, in Kent, overall journey times are reduced by 10 minutes and 30 minutes respectively.
The journey will start by Eurostar to Paris. Upon arrival in the French capital, a short transfer to either Gare de Lyon (by RER) or Gare de l’Est (by tube or walking) will take you to your final destination in Switzerland.
Travellers can also combine a visit in Paris before continuing their trip to Switzerland. Why not take the opportunity to visit the French capital en-route? Stand-alone Lyria tickets are available from Eurostar, giving the chance for travellers to choose between a direct travel and a stay in Paris for some time before continuing the journey to their final destination in Switzerland.
Simon Montague, Eurostar’s Director of Communications, commented: “We are always looking at ways to facilitate greener travel throughout Europe on high-speed trains. It is great news that our passengers can now book their tickets to Switzerland with the convenience and good value of connecting fares. We will continue to explore the various opportunities that will allow us to extend our range of destinations in the future”.
