Rail Europe Inc. Introduces Eurostar Fast Track Deal

~Deep Discounts Offered on Leisure Select Fare~

White Plains, N.Y., February 18, 2010 – Rail Europe Inc., the North American leader in European rail travel for over 75 years, is making tracks this spring season with significant savings on Eurostar, the high-speed passenger service connecting the UK and continental Europe. Rail Europe is offering special one-way and round-trip fares with the “Eurostar Fast Track Deal” when booking tickets in the Leisure Select class. With state-of-the-art booking technology on the company’s Web site, Rail Europe provides customers with an easy and convenient way to purchase travel in advance, saving time, money and unnecessary hassle.

Between February 16 and March 31, 2010, the special Eurostar promotion will allow travelers to purchase tickets at 20 percent off the regular price with fares beginning at $146 for one way and $257 for round-trip. The Fast Track offer is applicable to the U.S., Canada and Mexico with travel valid between March 16 and August 31, 2010. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

Eurostar affords seamless city center to city center train journeys. At speeds of up to 186mph the train connects London to Paris in 2 hours and 15 mins and London to Brussels in 1hour and 51 mins. The high-speed train also features daily services to Disneyland Resort Paris, as well as weekly direct services from London to Avignon in Provence during the summer months. Much like Eurostar’s Business Premier Class, Leisure Select offers the same spacious seating in addition to a selection of complimentary newspapers and magazines. Leisure Select is ideal for travelers who want to relax and enjoy at-seat service, including choice of meal, glass of wine, and the opportunity to read, play games or simply sit back and unwind.
