Club Eurostar frequent traveller scheme launches

Eurostar ClubThe operator of the international Eurostar train service launched an airline-style frequent traveller programme earlier this month. Club Eurostar works in the same way as the airline version too and comes with different membership tiers, access to premium lounges and a whole raft of other privileges.

Eurostar Classique is the entry level to the club, Eurostar Avantage is mid-level and Eurostar Carte Blanche the tier for those who clock up 1,500 points in a year. Classique enables travellers to collect a point for each £1 spent to be used on seat upgrades or a collection of special offers.

Avantage comes with the added bonus of being able to claim goodies from Club Eurostar shops and the option of offsetting points against the purchase price for travel on some European train routes. Carte Blanche offers personal service from the Eurostar team, a fast-track check-in option and access to business lounges and European Railteam lounges.

Unfortunately, membership of Club Eurostar is not aimed at the budget traveller who is constantly on the lookout for bargain tickets. The reason for this is that to join the club you have to buy a single journey ticket at a minimum price of £250.

If booked a month in advance on Eurostar’s website, a one-way ticket between London St Pancras and Paris Gare du Nord retails for as little as £40. Most leisure travellers, and probably a high proportion of business travellers, are unlikely to opt for Club Eurostar membership if is going to mean paying an extra £200 or more for their tickets.
