More travellers are expected to head onto the continent now that the National Express has launched an easy way to purchase tickets to Europe.
Those going on to the train operator's website will now be able to search for the best routes, journey times and fares to destinations such as Paris and Brussels.
Passengers will also have the option of getting information on 75 other destinations which can be accessed by the Eurostar in countries such as France, Germany and Belgium.
David Franks, National Express East Coast managing director, said: "The new facility to book through-fares online will make rail travel to mainland Europe even easier for our passengers.
"Our website already offers a comprehensive one-stop shop for travel in the UK and we are now pleased to offer more journey options connecting with Eurostar international rail services at the newly restored St Pancras International."
Whether travelling by train, boat, car or aeroplane it is important that holidaymakers ensure they take out travel insurance before they set off on their journey.
