Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

Eurostar & Intercity

It is easy to take the train from London to Luxembourg. You have a choice of two routes, one via Paris and the other via Brussels. Many travellers judge that the Brussels route has the edge. You avoid the change of stations in Paris and the route via Brussels includes some decent scenery as the train travels through the Ardennes region of Belgium.

The journey starts with a high-speed run on Eurostar from London to Brussels. That’s where you change onto an Intercity train for the onward journey to Luxembourg. The scenery on the journey from Brussels to Luxembourg becomes progressively more hilly.

London to Brussels

Board a Eurostar service from London St Pancras to Brussels. Little more than an hour after leaving London you’ll already be in northern France, speeding through Flanders fields towards Lille Europe, where many but not all Brussels-bound Eurostar trains make an intermediate stop. Some trains make up to three additional stops – at Ebbsfleet, Ashford and Calais.

Eurostar trains from London terminate at Brussels Midi station. Trains run every five minutes from Brussels Midi to Brussels Central (for the city centre). Your Eurostar ticket is valid for this short onward hop within Brussels. At Brussels Midi, there are good onward connections with a choice of Thalys or German ICE trains for direct links to Germany, as well as Belgian (or sometimes Dutch) Intercity trains to cities across the wider BeNeLux region.

Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar’s airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. This is a light-touch security scan, and there are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.

Brussels to Luxembourg

Direct Intercity trains leave Brussels hourly for the 230-kilometre journey to Luxembourg. These trains start at Brussels Midi station and make four more stops in the Belgian capital, including one at Brussels Central which is very convenient for the Grand Place. In Luxembourg City the trains terminate at the main station, which is simply called Luxembourg.

The journey from Brussels Midi to Luxembourg takes 3 hrs 20 mins. Trains make anything from 7 to 13 intermediate stops along the way, so this is no high-speed dash. Sit back and just watch the countryside slip by beyond the window. Beyond Namur, where the train crosses the River Meuse, the route runs through the forested hills of the Ardennes.
