Fares and booking tips

Latest fares and important tips when booking this route


London < > Rotterdam / Amsterdam


In order to book a trip to Amsterdam or Rotterdam you’ll need the following codes:

GDS - ZYA for Amsterdam and QRH for Rotterdam
Elgar - AMS for Amsterdam and ROT for Rotterdam

The journey is booked in the usual way just like you would to Paris or Brussels, though please note that you’ll only be able to book a one way TO Amsterdam and Rotterdam on the GDS, Fare basis codes will only be filed for one way because of this.

Outbound trains will run three times daily at 07:16 (train 9F 9112), 11:04 (tran 9F 9126) and 17:16 (train 9F 9150).

Inbound trains will run twice daily at 07:47 (train 9F 9119) and 18:47 (train 9F 9167).

On our New Amsterdam routing we will be allowing a commuter service between Brussels and Amsterdam, this means that a certain amount of seats will be saved for customers doing Amsterdam – Brussels and vice versa.

Unfortunately our systems cannot differentiate between the seats that are reserved for this commuter service and the rest of the seats for passengers travelling between Brussels and the UK. This means that sometimes on the GDS it will show there is availability, however the segment will then come back unconfirmed due to these seats being reserved for these passengers.

A space is only confirmed on the train once seats have come back from Eurostar (9f) and the segment is also confirmed. If no seating has come back from Eurostar (9f) even if the sector is confirmed the ticket is not guaranteed.

We advise agents not to guarantee a passenger that they have been booked on a certain train until that confirmed sector and seating comes back to the agent. Please check availability in a separate PNR and not in the same booking as we cannot reinstate an original ticket.

Need any assistance, please contact the GDS Helpdesk on 03448 224334, or Trade Sales on 03448 242 524 if you'd like to book on a business account.
