Does the Benelux Eurail Pass cover a trip from Brussels to London?

I am looking to travel around the Benelux region before traveling to London to visit family. With us traveling from Amsterdam to Bruges and Brussels, I was figuring that I should get a Eurail Benelux pass. Based on the Eurail site:Eurail Passes aren't valid in Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales). However, your pass entitles you to travel to London with the Eurostar high-speed train. Departing from Brussels or Paris, the Eurostar travels under the sea through the Channel Tunnel. A seat reservation is compulsory. seems that the Eurostar trip from Brussels to London would be included in the Benelux pass. Is that accurate or would I need to buy a separate Eurostar ticket?

    Hi Ryan,

    As of this year, a Eurail Benelux Pass does cover the Eurostar trains between Brussels and London. These trains would still just require reservations in addition to the pass.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase the reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (, entering the route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. 'Eurail Benelux Pass').

    The Eurostar can sell out quickly, so it's recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible. Generally, the Eurostar can be reserved 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.
