    Hi Najla,

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you would like to use the France Day Tripper Pass to take the Eurostar train from Paris to London and then return. It actually is possible to do this and use your France Day Tripper Pass to get a passholder fare on the Eurostar between London and Paris, and then use your France Day Tripper Pass for your travel within France on another day. It does not use up a day of rail travel on a pass to travel on the Eurostar train at a passholder rate, which is what makes your plan possible.

    You would validate your pass before boarding the Eurostar, but it would still be valid for the one month period that follows. Since it does not use up a day of rail travel on a pass to travel on the Eurostar at a passholder rate, you would then be able to use the France Day Tripper for your travel within France on another day within that one month time period.

    To purchase tickets at the Passholder rate on the Eurostar, you would click on 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass' from the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. When you are prompted to enter the name of the pass that you'll be traveling with, you would just type 'France Rail Pass' instead of 'France Day Tripper' to be quoted the passholder rates. There is currently an error on our website preventing the passholder fares from being viewed when you indicate that you'll be traveling with a France Day Tripper Pass. Instead of showing the price, an error message will display that says that the "passholder fares are unavailable or sold out at this time", but that is not actually the case, and the passholder fares are still likely to be available. You would just have to say that you'll be traveling with the regular France Rail Pass. We apologize for any confusion.
