Travelling with youngsters on Eurostar can be a stress-free time for you, your children and other passengers.
Airports and aeroplanes are often overwhelming experiences for adults, never mind the kids. By contrast, the Eurostar journey is smooth and relaxing from beginning to end.
What’s more, the facilities and seating arrangements help to make the trip even more pleasant.
There are baby-changing rooms
at both ends of the train, in Standard class
carriages 1 and 18.
And at feeding time, staff in the buffet cars
will gladly warm bottles on request.
So if you’re travelling with very young children or babies, you’re never far from the facilities that you might need.
As stated on the Fares page, adult tickets only apply to those aged 26 and over.
- Ages 4-11 inclusive qualify for a child fare
- Ages 12-25 inclusive qualify for a youth fare
- Under 4s don’t need a ticket but they’re not allocated a seat. They must sit on the lap of a parent or guardian. One child is permitted to travel for free per adult. Any additional children under the age of 4 must have a paying ticket.
Under 12s must be accompanied by a competent person over the age of 18.
Ages 12-17 can travel alone if they have a full, valid passport or identity card issued in their own name and are in possession of either a hand-written letter of consent from a parent or guardian, witnessed by an official person or a completed Unaccompanied Minors Consent Form
. This must be handed to a member of Eurostar staff at check-in. Please contact us
if you require a form.
