The high-speed rail service between the UK and mainland Europe, Eurostar, has announced that its London to Amsterdam service will operate fully direct both to and from the Netherlands from the 26 October 2020.
The journey time will be just over four hours (4h 9m) from Amsterdam and three and a half hours (3h 29m) from Rotterdam to London. Eurostar have confirmed that with bookings open up to six months in advance of travel, passengers can plan ahead for travel over the Christmas period and up to February 2021.
In light of the continuing uncertainty and recently introduced quarantine measures, Eurostar is offering passengers more flexibility with exchangeable fares.
Both on-board and in stations, Eurostar has introduced new hygiene measures to provide customers with a comfortable and safe experience. A new seat map ensures travellers are seated at a safe distance apart respecting social distancing guidelines. Trains are deep-cleaned before every journey, and cleaning teams are on-board to regularly disinfect high contact areas. All travellers must wear a mask on-board and in stations, in line with government regulations.
