The Snow Train comes to Geneva!

I’m sure we’ve all heard of the ‘Snow Train’ or more commonly referred to as the ‘Party Train’, but I’m sure only a handful of our readers will have been on it, due in part to the fact it has only started operating down to Geneva this season.Eurostar_3012_Waterloo680

The selling point from Eurostar is that “The total journey time is just over six hours, which makes it competitive financially and logistically with air travel”.

Eurostar will from this winter be running services from London St Pancras to Geneva four times a week: Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. And with return tickets ‘starting from’ £116 and no added costs for transporting snowboards, it might actually be comparable with budget air travel. Hooray! Yes, there is still a change involved, but instead of Paris it’ll simply involve a 37 minute wait in Lille before hopping onto a high-speed TVG France train to Geneva. That brings the total journey time up to just over six hours, which – when you factor in check in times, security and disembarking off a plane – makes it competitive financially and logistically with air travel.

As soon as we’ve tried it, or can get a review from our customers, we’ll let you know our thoughts. Until then it’s all about the flight delays for us…
