Eurolines cut price of spontaneous sporting escapes

Eurolines have cut the cost of a spontaneous escape from sport this summer - by slashing coach fares to Europe during the Olympic period.

Seats to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam will be available from just £35 one way or £66 return between 27 July and 13 August - up to a third off the standard price.

John Gilbert, Managing Director Eurolines UK, said: “This is an exciting time for Britain but inevitably there will also be people keen to escape the summer of sport.  We always offer a wide range of low value fares for people booking in advance but this month we’re also reducing our last minute fares to Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels by up to a third to allow people to take a spontaneous bargain break abroad.”

Eurolines operate twelve services per day to Paris, eight services per day to Amsterdam and Brussels. The bargain fares are available to purchase online up to 15 July and include booking fee, taxes and a two suitcase luggage allowance. For an additional £15 return passengers can connect onto any National Express coach service in Britain. Passengers booking in advance with Eurolines can travel for as little as £9 one way.

Customers travelling by coach are also helping to cut their carbon footprint. Coaches are the most environmentally friendly method of public transport- emitting around six times less carbon than flying.
