    Change in reply by Jeff to <b><u>IMPORTANT UPDATE</u></b><br /><br />As of this month (April 2018):<br /><br />The following rail passes no longer qualify passengers to receive ‘passholder’ rates for reservations on the Eurostar:<br /><br />Any single country Eurail Pass, including:<br /><br />• Eurail France Pass<br />• Eurail Benelux Pass<br /><br />Any 2 country option of Eurail Select Pass, including:<br /><br />• Eurail France-Italy Pass<br />• Eurail France-Switzerland Pass<br />• Eurail France-Germany Pass<br />• Eurail Benelux-France Pass<br />• Eurail France-Spain Pass<br />• Eurail Benelux-Germany Pass<br /><br />BritRail Passes and the France-Italy combination of the 2 country Eurail Select Pass continue to not be valid on the Eurostar.<br /><br />Passengers traveling with any of these rail passes would need to purchase regular tickets to take the Eurostar.<br /><br />Passholder rates will continue to be offered (depending on availability) to any passenger traveling with a Eurail Global Pass, a 3 country Eurail Select Pass (that includes the country of arrival or departure, be it France or the Benelux), or a 4 country Eurail Select Pass (that includes the country of arrival or departure, be it France or the Benelux)..

    Change in reply by Jeff to Thank you for your question, Lauren. To be eligible to receive Passholder rates on the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a>, you would just need to have a valid rail pass (and, of course, the rail pass would have to include one of the countries your particular <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a> train would be departing from or arriving into, be it France, Great Britain, or the 'Benelux'). Since actual ticket costs for the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a> aren't covered by any rail pass, it would just be a discounted rate you'd be receiving. Considering this, it would not require a day of rail travel on your pass to receive a Passholder rate to take this particular train. Therefore, you would be able to use your pass to receive the Passholder rate on the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a>, even if your rail days will already be used up on your pass - provided that the travel still falls within the longer validity period of the pass and the Passholder rates themselves are available. Of course, you would still need to have the pass in your possession when you take this train. You would purchase tickets at the Passholder rate on the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a> on Rail Europe's website. The <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a> is unique in that it can generally be booked up 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure. The Passholder rates can sell out very quickly, especially during the busy Spring and Summer travel season, so I would recommend purchasing your tickets on this train as soon as possible..
