EUROSTAR: New Amsterdam Services

Eurostar is launching a new direct service between Amsterdam and London on 15 December.

That is, of course, unless no-deal-Brexit issues play a disruptive part. The Dutch government has warned that, if the UK crashes out of the European Union without a deal, it would “complicate” customs arrangements.

Previously, passengers could travel direct from London to Amsterdam in three hours and 55 minutes, but were forced on the return journey to take a Thalys train Brussels Midi and change to the Eurostar after going through security and customs checks.

“Notwithstanding no-deal Brexit interference, this enhancement to Eurostar’s London-Amsterdam service will take a friction point out of what is already a wonderfully popular offering. It’s a great move by Eurostar,” said The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.

The new service will be streamlined by conducting those checks at Amsterdam Centraal to allow direct travel in both directions, provided Brexit adds no additional complications.

Eurostar’s popular London to Amsterdam service launched in April 2018, with additional frequencies added in June 2019.
