Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, today launches a ‘Press for champagne’ button to kick off the 100-day countdown to its 25th anniversary. In a first for any transport provider, travellers can ‘press for champagne’ using the latest version of the Eurostar app to join in the celebrations and make their trip even more memorable.
With 100 days to go until Eurostar’s 25th anniversary on 14th November 2019, the first 25 customers on selected trains to press the button can sit back and relax as a complimentary glass of bubbles is served to their seat. The new feature will be available on 6th August and then on peak Friday evening services from London to Paris, Brussels, Rotterdam and Amsterdam for the rest of the month.
Marc Noaro, Chief Customer Officer, Eurostar, said: “For 25 years Eurostar has provided customers with a fast, comfortable and enjoyable way to travel. We’re trialling a new ‘press for champagne’ button this summer to offer travellers a chance to join in the celebrations and make their trip even more special.”
The ‘Press for champagne’ button will be available to customers on the following trains on 6th August, 100 days before Eurostar’s 25th anniversary, and then on Friday evenings for the rest of the month (9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th).
