Eurostar launches free app
Travelling to Europe by train just got even easier with the new Eurostar App, which is available for free on iPhone and Android devices, allows passengers to book journeys on-the-go and receive tickets direct to their phones.
The mobile ticket comes directly to customers' phones when they make a booking through The Eurostar App and can then be simply scanned at check-in. Other services provided by the app include live service updates and access to a personal profile page, to store address details and seating preferences.
Members of Eurostar’s Loyalty Programmes (Eurostar Frequent Traveller and Eurostar Plus Points) can also use the App to earn points when they book and to view their point balances at the touch of a screen. A simple Express Exchange functionality offers Business Premier travellers the flexibility to change their journey details to fit around their busy schedules. To coincide with the app, Eurostar has also launched a mobile version of eurostar.com, to provide an enhanced online experience when accessing the website on mobile devices.
Nick Mercer, Commercial Director for Eurostar comments: “Our aim is to make using our services as easy and seamless as possible. So with the majority of our customers now owning a smartphone, we are really pleased that we are able to provide a new suite of services that make booking and checking in even easier for them. “The new Eurostar App and mobile website represent the start of many exciting mobile developments for Eurostar, which will help ensure we become the first choice operator of short haul travel from the UK to Europe.”
The Eurostar App was created by Backelite and is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or the Android Market on Android devices. Go to the Eurostar App and mobile website for more information.
