Eurostar’s ill-timed email

I received an email from Eurostar today, suggesting I spend £69 on a Eurostar gift card, enabling my nearest and dearest to travel to Paris or Brussels by train from London.

If I worked for Eurostar’s marketing department, I would have perhaps waited to send that email until after memories fade of the two thousand people who were trapped for hours in the tunnel overnight.

I can only hope that none of those passengers received that gift suggestion from Eurostar…

Paris without paying a packet
In the January gloom the city of lights is still a hive of activity, with Parisians emerging from hibernation to reunite with friends and hit the winter sales. Join them with a stay in the heart of the city at the chic Novotel Paris Vaugirard Montparnasse.

A little Parisian luxury
The lavish Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel helps you see Paris without even leaving your luxurious room. Most rooms have a balcony with stunning views of the Eiffel Tower, River Seine or the gardens of the Champs de Mars.

An affordable escape to Brussels
Satisfy your inner explorer with the many hidden gems in and around the city’s famous Grand Place, before retiring to the warmth of the fabulous four-star Radisson Blu EU Hotel.

A little extra style in the city
When you’ve revelled in the city’s delights, relax in sumptuous style at the iconic Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Brussels, with its stunning glass-domed roof and Art Deco façade. Book today and you’ll get two free tickets to the Magritte Museum, where you’ll find a fabulous showcase of the work of the city’s most famous painter.
