How far in advance can I book Eurostar tickets?

  • Lyon, Avignon and Marseille
Tickets on the direct* Eurostar train go on sale between 150 and 280 days in advance, depending on when you book.

  • Deutsche Bahn ICE

If you try to book and the dates you choose are greyed out, just come back nearer the time to buy your tickets.
 

* On the way to the UK, simply board your train in Lyon Part-Dieu, Marseille Saint-Charles or Avignon TGV. You won’t need to check in or arrive 30 minutes before departure because we’ll be doing check-in, security and immigration checks later in the journey at our hub station in Lille. This is because the stations in Lyon, Marseille and Avignon don’t have the facilities to do all the necessary checks. When you arrive in Lille, our onboard and station teams will guide you every step of the way..
