Virgin and Eurostar

VIRGIN ATLANTIC (VS) is to partner Eurostar in a joint e-ticketing programme claimed to be the world’s first.  Virgin Atlantic passengers can simply make a booking on Eurostar at the same time as they book their air ticket via the VS contact centre, which has access to live availability on each high speed train, or through their local travel agent.  Eurostar is the only rail operator in the world to be registered on GDS in its own right.  Following the move to paperless ticketing Eurostar has pioneered this solution to enable travel agents, and passengers, to book Virgin Atlantic and Eurostar tickets in one transaction.  Eurostar tickets to Brussels are also valid for journeys to any Belgian station, including Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent.  Bookings made in the UK can be made up to 120 days in advance of travel and up to 270 days for bookings made from Virgin Atlantic’s international destinations.
