SNCB Europe has launched a new online service offering great deals to Europe by train. B-Europe, the name of the service, is offering direct travel from London to 135 destinations on the continent.
This is great news for UK residents, who now have even more choice for buying seamless rail tickets from London to Europe. Eurostar is currently offering some great deals, so it’s great to see some more competition.
SNCB B-Europe is offering tickets to cities in Belgium, France, Germany, Holland and Luxembourg.
The biggest benefit to travellers from London and the UK, is the breadth of service being offered by SNCB B-Europe to Belgium, Germany and Holland. Coupled with the fact that they are offering great deals to those countries.
It’s possible to book seamless travel to no less than 35 destinations in Belgium, 46 in Germany and 42 in Holland.
As the company are based in Belgium, they are ideally situated in the hub of Europe, and bookings include trains across the Eurostar, Thalys, ICE, Fyra and InterCity-EuroCity networks. All trains from the UK will arrive and depart from one of the three Eurostar stations of Brussels, Lille or Paris.
High speed rail across Europe is on the rise and this is another welcome addition to other companies who offer European rail tickets. Rail travel on the continent is often much cheaper than the UK, with superior comfort and amenities.
For shorter journeys into the continent the train offers a lot less hassle than Britain’s overcrowded airports. To get to the countries offered by the SNCB B-Europe service, it is in fact much quicker from London than taking a plane.
The added bonus is that you can arrive on the continent in comfort, knowing that you have taken a green travel option.
Their new UK online service has been designed to make it easy to order online – no waiting in queues on phone calls, no postage and no pick up. Simply, go online and you can order your journey straight away and print out your own tickets.
