All Eurostar through-fares offers have evolved with the change of the inventory system.


  • Eurostar and TGV/Thalys through-fares offers for individuals have also evolved. It will be necessary to book the routes in a summated way, that is to say that there will be two tickets with a price for each of the journeys, unlike today where there is a fare for the whole end-to-end trip.


The ABS (Any Belgian station) and ADS (Any Dutch station) offers consist of booking a specific Eurostar train as well as an add-on, which enables a passenger to travel to Any Belgian/Dutch Station via Brussels.

For the customer, only one global price is seen for the entire journey, though the customer will receive two barcodes for the booking:

  • one for the Eurostar segment
  • one for the Belgian/Dutch leg, that holds the travel time and date information based on the Eurostar segment

The Belgian/Dutch segment can be used within 24 hours after arriving into Brussels, or becomes valid from any Belgian/Dutch station within 24 hours before departure of the Eurostar from Brussels.

These offers are accessible by UK Travel Agencies.
