no direct eurostar on a thursday

I have just been speaking to Eurostar re my compensation for my delay in July and they made me aware that they are going to be trialing not having a direct service on a Thursday to add to the Tuesday and Saturday that they don't do direct now. Just thought would let people know.

Yes this was an unpleasant surprise after I'd already booked. I'll now be travelling via Gare du Nord

Hi ian,

Yes we had discussions about this when we heard some time ago. Without the direct service on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday it limits people booking with the 2nts plus 2 nights free offer to Monday - Friday or Wednesday - Sunday if they want to go direct. As weekends are very busy in DLP, the Monday and Friday trains are going to be the most popular and get booked up far more quickly now.

Hi Chewy - the direct train runs every day during UK school holidays usually, which is why you could do this last week.

Can't do a link on my phone but on the Eurostar website there's a detailed timetable showing exactly which days the direct train is running over the next 6 months or so.

Can you give the link later Lelly? I can only see the timetables for London - Paris and London - Brussels, not London - MLV Chessy.
