Cheap(er) Eurostar tickets

I often travel between London and Brussels and it’s become noticeably harder to find the cheaper priced tickets over the last few years. But here’s a trick…

Rather than booking through www.eurostar.com, book instead through www.bahn.de. Select London St Pancras as either the destination or origin accordingly, and then for the other station select Aachen which is the closest German station to Belgium. The ticket can be downloaded online, so there’s no need to be in Germany at any point, just start/end your journey at Brussels Midi as normal.

The difference? I’ve just bought a refundable ticket for €69 for Sunday for a train that is priced at €200 on the eurostar website.
