Charter trains

Why settle for a carriage when you can have a whole train?

Picture this - a train, and it's all yours to take wherever you want (within reason). But not just any train the fastest train in the UK. So you can take it to some of the most important destinations across Europe. We're delighted to be able to have made this a reality - bespoke journeys for you and up to 749 others for anything from taking your staff to their annual conference to taking them to an international sporting event. As a way to entertain staff, suppliers and clients during product launches or similar, chartering one of our trains is more than just a little bit special.

Branding opportunities

As standard, we'll provide branded departure screen signage, but there are a host of other branding options that we can give you. Here are a few of our ideas:

  • Branded headrest covers
  • Branded drinks coasters and meal tray inserts
  • Branded platform banner stands outside each carriage

How it works

Eurostar charter trains are readily available on Eurostar's core routes - London, Paris, Brussels, Disneyland and Lille.

We will help arrange a connecting charter train to access either our St Pancras, Ebbsfleet or Ashford stations to connect with a Eurostar charter train (meaning we can get a lot of people to us from almost any part of the UK).
