Travel with Toddler/Child under 4

I'm travelling with a toddler (under 2), but I do not see an option to add her as a traveller. Am I going to run into any boarding difficulties since she does not have a ticket? I also did not see anything in the FAQs about travelling with a child under 4.

    Thank you for your question, Melanie.

    On most trains, children under the age of 4 can travel for free. In such a case, they would not have a seat of their own, so they would sit one of the adult passenger's laps. Therefore, you would not need to purchase a ticket for the toddler. If you wish for her to have a seat of her own, then you would purchase a ticket at the child rate by classifying her as a child ('Youth/Child (4-25)') when you search for schedules and fares on our website.

  • On the Brussels to London St Pancras train do you need to buy tickets for a 2.5year old?

      On most trains, including the train from Brussels to London (the 'Eurostar'), children under the age of 4 travel at no cost. To travel free, a child under 4 would not have a seat of their own, so they would sit the lap of an adult passenger in their party. Therefore, you would not need to purchase a ticket for a 2 year old. If you wish for your 2 year old to have a seat of their own, then you would purchase tickets at the child rate by classifying him/her as a child ('Youth/Child (4-25)') when you search for schedules and fares on our website.

      You would purchase tickets for a Eurostar from Brussels to London by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the route.

      The Eurostar is unique from other trains in that it can generally be booked up 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure. The best rates on this train can sell out very quickly, so it is recommended that the tickets be purchased as soon as possible.
