The Eurostar is quickly becoming the preferred mode of transportation in Western Europe. Connecting London with Paris and Brussels in mainland Europe, trains operate year-round, though there are additional destinations during different times of the year, based on need.
The trains on the Eurostar line are fast, and they are efficient. They travel at a top speed of 300 kilometers per hour, making them nearly as fast as a jetliner. Tickets are less expensive, and there are shorter lines at security checkpoints along the lines. Passengers enjoy comfortable seating in new train cars, and once the train reaches the station, car hire services can be arranged to the rider's final destination.
There are 6 non-stop trains from London to Paris, and 12 more daily trains that have stops between the two major European cities. There are 3 non-stop runs between London and Brussels each day. This means that there are thousands of opportunities each year to make a quick trip from England to the European mainland. Amazingly, the service runs on time more than 90 percent of the time, and passenger comfort is paramount. The Eurostar service is inexpensive, and it is a safe mode of travel. The Eurostar trains connect England to mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel, and Eurostar has quickly grabbed more than 60 percent of the market for travel between London and Paris, and on through to Brussels. High speed rail service makes all of Western Europe easily accessible, and most destinations are within a few hours train ride of the major national cities.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
