With a Eurorail Benelux Pass, can we board the Eurostar from London to Brussels or Amsterdam and come back by Eurostar?

If I purchase a eurorail Benelux pass for 3 persons for travelling in May-June 2018, can we board the eurostar from london to brussels or amsterdam and come back by Eurostar? If yes, is it allowed a single time or can we use it multiple times.

    Hi Harish,

    As of just last year, a Eurail Benelux Pass will cover the Eurostar trains between London and Brussels in either direction. Eurostar trains just require reservations as a supplement to the pass.

    You would purchase reservations from London to Brussels by searching the route on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Benelux Pass').

    There is no limit to how many times you can take any train, as long as it is within the parameters of the 'travel days' allowed by your pass. Therefore, if you choose, you can use your pass to cover a trip from London to Brussels and then also a return from Brussels back to London.

    From Brussels to Amsterdam, you would take a Thalys high-speed train, which also will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.

    When booking reservations for connection from London to Amsterdam via a Eurostar and a Thalys, you would just break up your search once in Brussels. Therefore, you would do one search from London to Brussels and then another search for connecting trains from Brussels to Amsterdam.

    These trains can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that the reservations be purchased as soon as possible. The Eurostar can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure, while Thalys trains can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure.
