A TGV cheaper than Eurostar? That's the company's crazy plan!

Going to London? Yes, but at what price? If travelling across the Channel is proving to be expensive (especially over the festive season), wait until you see this new rail company, which promises to offer low-cost tickets from 2025, putting its already well-established competitor in the shade.

Say goodbye to the Eurostar and say hello to low prices!

Evolyn is positioning itself as a potential competitor to Eurostar following its announcement. And with good reason: the company is planning to offer low-cost tickets, i.e. much cheaper than those offered by Eurostar!

With the purchase of 12 cross-Channel trains (and the fleet could even be expanded to 16 trains in total), the company will link Paris to London from Gare du Nord to St Pancras International station, starting in 2025. But that's not all! Stops in the north of France could also be proposed (but nothing is certain, it is still under discussion).

Traffic jams under the Channel?

This announcement comes at the same time as Eurostar's announcement that it is suspending its London - Netherlands route due to renovation work at Amsterdam Centraal station.

If you're wondering whether there will be traffic jams in the Channel Tunnel, think again: French operator Getlink has announced that the tunnel is designed to handle almost double its current traffic. So no problem there!
