yeah everyone involved in this process is an utter jobsworth cunt
A normal day in London
But have you used them Amey? Not sure if real or not
i used eurodispatch twice in the past, it was fine, still €30 each way for taking the bike but I guess thats the price I have to pay for convenience. I literally have no idea why eurodispatch cannot run now. Other than jobsworth cuntishness.
Yes but what about flixbus? I can find bike slots for London to Lille, Paris and others... but I'm not convinced they're real
never came across them but £75 and similar jobsworth-ness as eurostar it seems, I am guessing no phone number to talk to someone too?
£30 London-Lille with bike
I was looking at Aug and all I was getting was 12 hr journey time £75 and no bike slots :(
If ir remember bikes on eurostar stopped as soon as covid hit. It was already 40 instead of 30 at the time. Likelihood is that it will jump to 50 when it starts again...
the easiest is : cycling or train to Newhaven, take the dfds ferry overnight, ride or train to paris or wherever in france.... job done :) holidays start at your doorstep.
Do flixbus smush your bike in with the other luggage?
National Express take note please.
Not sure how much better this is!
Not sure this is any help but a couple of years ago I had to get a train from mid-Wales to London with my bike. Avanti west coast, total shit when it comes to bikes, so I went to tesco before my train and bought some christmas wrapping paper and tape. Wheels off, wrapped it all up with a load of tape, got no bother whatsoever.
This is was september however so the guy with a massive 'christmas present' taking up the space in front of the disabled loo did get some stares.
in awe of this genius strategy, #rep
Would easyJet fall for this?
Could use birthday wrapping paper if it's high summer.
Might be worth sourcing some Eid Mubarak wrapping paper too for the tawny amongst us
Eurostar have changed the relaunch date from May, to June... to maybe September. https://www.eurostar.com/uk-en/travel-info/travel-planning/luggage/bikes
'Security and customs issues...'
one thing is for sure... it won't be offered at the original rate of 30£, which was then bumped to 40£
jesus what a shower of cunts
Not Eurostar but I did just have a good experience on Belgian trains with my bike. You pay €4 for your bike for the day, ticket fares are based on distance (god I hate the UK) and valid for the entire day i.e. you don't book a seat on a specific train. Bliss.

from a french perspective, it might delay the shower of brits...
