Ski train reminder

Take the train to the French Alps

Eurostar runs direct day trains to the Alps on Saturdays from December to April and direct night trains on Fridays from January to April.

Our generous luggage allowance means you can take your skis or snowboard, as well as two bags at no extra cost.

Just check in an hour before departure from St Pancras or Ashford International to speed straight to the slopes.


Arriving in the French Alps

Trains from the UK stop at Moûtiers, Aime-la-Plagne and Bourg-Saint-Maurice, from where Courchevel, La Plagne, Tignes, Meribel and Les Arcs are all within easy reach by coach.

Return trains leave from Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice so you’ll need to make your own way from Aime-la-Plagne.

Check-in closes 10 minutes before departure, both the UK and France.

  • Check-in closes 10 minutes before your train leaves, both in France and the UK.
