Rail passengers can soon travel directly from Amsterdam to London in just 4 hours

RAIL passengers will be able to travel directly from Amsterdam to London from October 26.

The new non-stop Eurostar return cuts the journey from the Dutch capital to four hours and nine minutes, with tickets at least £40 each way.

Passengers will also be able to do Rotterdam to St Pancras International in three hours 29 minutes.

Currently, you can go by train to Amsterdam from London directly but the return involves changing at Brussels in Belgium, a five-hour trip.

Holland is currently off the UK’s Covid safe list, so a 14-day quarantine on return is compulsory.

Travellers who arrive back in the UK from the Netherlands after August 15 have to self-isolate for 14 days under coronavirus safety measures.

Tickets for the new rail service go on sale from September 1 and can be booked up to six months in advance.

Eurostar said all bookings made from July 1 to December 31 are exchangeable for any dates of travel available at the time of purchase, with no exchange fee up to 14 days before departure.

The company said its trains are deep cleaned before every journey and that a new seat map system will ensure passengers are kept at a safe distance apart.
