Business class travel offers a similar level of service to first class, with some significant extras dedicated to those travelling for work rather than pleasure.
Unlike flying, the majority of trains offer two classes of travel only – first and standard.
Eurostar (UK to Paris, Lille and Brussels) and TGV Domestic (within France) both offer a distinct business class service, as well as a leisure class and standard.
Eurostar’s Business Premier fare offers such benefits as:
- Flexible tickets
- Faster check-in
- Access to exclusive business lounges
- Dedicated carriages for business travellers
- Spacious, comfortable seats
- At-seat power points
- Complimentary three-course meal and drinks served at the seat

On French TGV routes, the first class ‘TGV Pro’ or ‘Business’ fare offers some of the same benefits.
